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: Insurance at last!!

Don't know that I should mention this - but I took Polly away last weekend, got there, parked up, got her set up and then the husband said the fatal words - "Have you got the key?" "No - they're on the side at home..... :crazy: " But a small key on his key fob did the trick! Think I may need some n...

Re: Insurance at last!!

Portafold insurance, to be honest, I don't have any, but coming to think of it, does it cover you in a crash (god forbit) or burn down, break in damage? We are going off down to Cornwall for a week and I think I need it, I'll have a look at your pages Matthew, cheers. Oh and I need two new handles b...

Re: Booking in to campsites!

We have the same problem, not sure what we have booked in the end, but we get hard standing with electric hookup thrown in. I think they booked us in on the motorhome area, but I much prefer to be in the tent area where you have more grass and open field around you. We'll see! Booked a week in Cornw...

Re: Portafold awning pic's wanted

I had an original awning, but unfortunately it was beyond repair as it was intergrating and mouldy.
I'm also looking at alternative awnings?
Anybody got any pics of those?

Is that a fold down shelf/table below the top shelf. I've only seen shelves balanced on the side shelves? This looks really lovely! Yeah, i said the exact same thing, I have a sink unit and put it across the ledge on the sides, but this looks much nicer and I have checked my sink unit and it indeed...

Newby Hall 2009 Classic car, motor and caravan show. I didn't bring my Portafold as i was on our VW Club stand, but saw this one at the classic caravan club stand, very tidy and had a good chat with the owner, turns out he lives only 10 minutes away from my house... :) Think his son is a member on t...
