The 11th International Portafold & Ansfold Gathering (i.e. 2019)

Following the huge success of the 10th International Gathering we'll be at Retrofestival again. It's a massive show now and is popular with everyone.

It's held at the Newbury Showground, Priors Court, Hermitage, Thatcham, West Berkshire, RG18 9QZ; on the weekend of the 9th, 10th & 11th of August 2019.

Don't book with the organisers, just contact me to get your pitch saved.

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

Hello all, is anybody going to the world record attempt at Stapleford next weekend? I hope to be there Friday afternoon, look for a blue/white Portafold with matching car. Lets have a pork pie and a pint.

Talking to the organiser Nich, I've been given a large stand where all the Portafolds, Ansfolds (and apparently a Mini-Motel) are all going to be directed to pitch up, so hopefully it should be easy for us all to find each other. :wave:

We may need name badges though with our forum names on...

See you all there on Saturday afternoon chaps - hopefully in time to get my free ride on the trains... :D

Not able to bring the Citroën this time as have been having fuel & running problems - over a litre of dirty water and half a punnet of bluberries found in the petrol tank last weekend! :crazy:

Have we all made our Portafold shaped cakes or are we baking one in the vans??

Have a safe trip everyone...

Just wanted to thank everyone I met at Stapleford Miniature Railway for making me welcome. I just wish I could have camped for the weekend but as I only found out about this event at short notice and I haven't as yet got my Portafold kitted out for this. By the way, I was the tall bloke with the green Peugeot 306.

Thanks again, Tony
