The Big 60th Birthday Party of the Portafold (12th International Portafold & Ansfold Gathering) (i.e. 2020)

Help us set a new world record at the big 60th birthday party!

Ironically, the current record is 59 Portafolds and Ansfolds (at the 2016 Newbury Retrofestival), so we want to smash this by getting well over 70 there next year. As of last year we have a new area that will take that number of caravans and the show itself is a fantastic event that will not disappoint. There really is something for the whole family.

So put the dates 7th, 8th, 9th of August 2020 in your diary now and get those dates booked off work early. Be part of a record breaking event that will go down in history.

Show Address: Newbury Showground, Priors Court, Hermitage, Thatcham, West Berkshire, RG18 9QZ

Don't book direct with the show organisers, just contact me to get your pitch saved.

Re: 1978 Portafold for sale

Just in case some of you are wondering where the curtains are. I forgot to mention we use velcro attached curtains (again made by my wife) which are doubled over so they let hardly any light in.

1978 Portafold for sale - NOW SOLD

The time has come for someone else to enjoy our Portafold. We're just not using enough and I would rather sell it to someone who wants to look after it. Yes this is really a 1978 Portafold.

It's the original colour from the factory, however it was not built until 1978 !

I bought it from the first owner who bought it directly from the manufacturer.

Hi Inky,

Yes Mini wheels will fit, note they do not have the 3 nipples sticking out which hold the hub cap on.

I use a gazebo outside the door and there was no problem putting that up last year so a small awning should be fine.

Except ..... for the wind :shock: . Last year it was very windy (no rain though).

Looking forward to seeing you there.

I'm planning to arrive Friday evening.

Wroughton

Received my ticket this morning :)

Have a few logistical issues that have come out of no where, so might not be able to make it now, which will be great shame :-(
