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: National Gathering @ Wings & Wheels - 13 & 14 August 2011

Sorry we could not come, you have some lovely pictures Matthew, every one is different in it's own way, it makes interest for viewers, and good to see so many with an awning of some kind, gives others inspiration. I am in the process of sorting one myself, cut down an awning from a previous caravan,...

Re: Shelf/Area at the end of the van

Hi Misty Meg, That's just what we did in the end, got a 2ft wide ply from B&Q, put a long baton of wood front and back on the underside with another 2 batons running the other way so it divides the ply into 3, all screwed from the top as the ply not thick enough, we then used these to attach legs to...

Re: what type of insurance

Thank you Matthew, All our vehicles are comprehensive, I understand what you say, the quote that never got back to me was the caravan & camping club, so what i will have to do is just ask for straight forward caravan insurance for when it's not attached. Don't want anyone else taking a fancy to it! ...
