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.
Pictures from and chat about shows you've been to.

To give it its full title, The 24th Annual Classic & Performance Car Spectacular & Autojumble, held at Tatton Park near Knutsford, Cheshire.

I've since spoken to the organisers of the show and it is going to be possible to have a stand at Tatton Park next June, but, I need to know who is seriously interested in coming so I know how big a pitch we need. And I need to know by Christmas really because the show gets booked up quickly.
Please post a reply to this topic if you would like to exhibit at next years show.
Wanted: Any original Portafold, Ansfold or Mini-Motel brochures, adverts or magazine articles.
Also, any chassis numbers for the above caravans!

put us down for a space if you can, but we only have a new car to show, but it is a small engined modern super mini showing that a small car can tow it with ease
as our other classic car (a Volvo 164) is most definately a work in progress!
will be nice to meet some of the club there

We have been going to Tatton for years and always take a car to show as it is free to get in and free to camp, for the general public it will be £16.50 per day for a couple to get in. We have only put the car on show previously and have to get there early on Friday to get a camping space in the general camping area.
Each year they have an area marked off for vintage and classic caravans of all makes but we have not gone with them because that area is in the shade.
If you do have a stand next year we would like to join you and meet other Portafolders.

"proper beer" - is that a word of warning to all southern light weight cider drinkers!?
(I'm a light weight - so I can say it!)

Hello fellow portafold owners, sounds like this show should not be missed. I hear the autojumble is a bargain hunters dream
