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.

Adrian Flux Classic (aka Wroughton) 2010 - CANCELLED

Post by Admin » Thu, 11 Feb 2010, 9:10 pm

Having just spoken to the organisers of the Adrian Flux Classic show, which was known as Wroughton, has unfortunately been cancelled completely for 2010. More details will follow in the next few weeks.

I have just received the following letter from Jo & Greg the organisers:


Dear Matthew,

It is with great regret that we are writing to you to let you know that the Adrian Flux Classic Car & Bike show WILL NOT be taking place in 2010.

As you may be aware, last year was a very difficult year for us and, as a direct result of the problems we experienced with trying to secure a suitable location for the show, we were unfortunate enough to experience a massive financial loss. As we are only a small company (ie: Greg and I), the show has always had to be self financing. Those who know us well know that our main aim has always been to simply provide a show 'for enthusiasts, by enthusiasts' with the emphasis on everyone having a good time but keeping costs, for both visitors and exhibitors, as low as possible and with the added bonus of supporting local charities where we could. Sadly, still stinging from the 'after effects' of the 2009 show, we have not been able to recover sufficiently to be able to cover a show for 2010.

We are really sorry to disappoint you and were really looking forward to seeing everyone again this year, we had hoped to be able to bring the show back to Swindon in its former format but unfortunately it just isn't to be for this year. If we can get things together again we may be back next year but for now we really don't know if that will be possible.

Please help us to let as many people know that the show will not be going ahead this year, please forward on this message to as many people as you think may be interested, thanks.

We hope you all have a brilliant season, and may even see some of you as fellow exhibitors at some point as without the huge amount of planning that normally soaks up our time, we may actually find ourselves able to take our own car out!

With very best wishes

Jo & Greg
