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.

NEC Classic Car Show - 11th-13th November 2011

Post by Admin » Mon, 14 Nov 2011, 5:25 pm

Pictures of the stand we had at the NEC last weekend. Very tiring, but a thoroughly enjoyable show.

A big thank you to Paul~3, Barry, Fifi, Bernie, Heidi, Tony (TRUNNIONMAN) and Matt (Morris_J2) for all their help over the weekend. I couldn't have done any of it without you all. :clap:

Had a cracking day out at this one. Well done to all of those who made the stand look as impressive as it did. :clap:
Had a last minute call from Matthew on the Thursday night asking if I could put my van on the stand as I only live about 30 minutes from the NEC.
