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.

Broadlands 2009 (Hampshire Pageant of Motoring)

Post by Admin » Fri, 04 Sep 2009, 7:41 pm

A big thankyou to Justine and Neil for putting on the stand at Broadlands this year. Although it was £10 a night to camp, very wet until Monday lunchtime and extremely :shock: cold on Saturday night, it was still a good show.

Oh, and the pubs in town aren't bad either. Apart from one which had the worst cider I've ever tasted. :x

Cheers Mate,

Must admit i wasn't sure if that was cider or they were still cleaning the pipes out :shock:

And the vodka and coke was as bad!!!!

That was a terrible pub, The Tudor Rose in Romsey, should anyone want to avoid it.

Anyone who serves Cider that bad should be shot. :x

What a load of banjo players!
