The Slightly Delayed Big 60th+1 Birthday Party of the Portafold (12th International Portafold & Ansfold Gathering) (i.e. 2021)

Help us set a new world record at the huge 60th+1 birthday party!

Ironically, the current record is 59 Portafolds and Ansfolds (we set that at the 2016 Newbury Retrofestival), so we want to smash this by getting well over 70 there this time. We have a lovely 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 13th, 14th, 15th of August 2021 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 (07771544419) to get your pitch saved.

Hope to come along Saturday, but no plans confirmed just yet.

Will be without Portafold though as tow bar still not refitted to the Pontiac yet, and wont be before this weekend, so just a day visit on the cards at present.

Re: National Gathering @ Retrofestival - 11 & 12 August 2012

Maybe not so much Black Rat this time. I should explain, a few of the Victory Wheelers 'indulged' in a few pints of Black Rat scrumpy and ended up having to sleep it off in their caravans. I should also mention that they didn't offer to bring any back to me on the stand! Probably just as well actua...

Re: colour coding 1974 Portafold

Update The table I made doesnt work. I find it tends to get in the way of us accessing the caravan and sitting down, and we ended up with it propped in the awning all the time. We now just use the higher table running from side to side under the window. Sleeping arrangement has been worked out as fo...
