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.

Has anyone found a mixture of different coloured originals panels?

I've mentioned elsewhere that I've had the paint stripped off my Portafold by Soda-blasting - well, its revealed that the 'hull' and roof are cream, but the 4 sides, which appear never to have been painted, are white.

Replacements? Colour-coding? Customising option from the manufacturer?

I've learnt to 'never say never' when it comes to Portafolds. I know my roof is certainly a lighter shade than the rest of my body (which is the yellow/cream colour) but that's just down to the sun bleaching it. A good buff with T-Cut and then car polish has done wonders for getting some of the yellow back into it though.
