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.

Awning/Interior

Post by ben_minor_63 » Fri, 03 Aug 2012, 6:24 pm

Hi. I don't currently own a portafold but i am looking to purchase one soon. I am wanting to know. if i can't get hold of an Original awning what can i use instead, pictures would help. And Also when I get myn I would like to do a 50's rockabilly/rock n roll inspired interior with Marilyn Monroe wall paper etc. How easy is it to change the wall paper and make out the interior. Pictures would help me visualize this.
Thanks for the help
Ben

Ben,

For the best advice and inspiration on interior décor you'd be best off trying to get along to a National Gathering. You'll be blown away by the selection of caravan interiors and it will help you to make your mind up on so many things. It will also save you from making any mistakes that other people have already made.

Either this years show:

or next years:

Ben, My interior is shown here http://www.portafold.co.uk/forum/viewto ... ?f=9&t=357

you can get material in the style you require and have the seats trimed as required.
I think I bought ours here http://www.endoflinefabrics.co.uk

hope this helps.

cheers
Dan
