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.

Wow, that looks really good & it's right on me doorstep as well! I am certainly interested, how much will it cost? I shall doubtless have the usual pain & anguish from her indoors over her shiftwork patterns. Last time we went through this over some show I wanted to attend, I suggested I took a (female) friend instead of her, & the shifts got magically sorted straight away...... :D

This is a brilliant show. We went last year with the classic cars. Such an unusual venue but so much to see. We're already booked in with the Morris and the Portafold but we are only going on Sunday as we're in Beaulieu on Saturday. We'll make sure we pitch with the portafolds on Sunday if you'll have us.

Well the wife is on-side; it fits in with her shifts perfectly - never been known before! Awaiting confirmation from my own employer but that is usually OK so I've booked in online for Friday & Saturday night camping. We are also Morris-towed, with a '53 Six series MS 21hp. See you there!

I have confirmed with Lady McAlpine that the Fawley Hill event will take place next year in May.

Well worth attending. Loads of space, loads to see and do ... and they have an amazing 'train set' in their back garden ;-))
Cheers

Hi all,
This will take place on 20th, 21st and 22nd May 2016.

Here are points to note:

•All Portafolds will be allowed to exhibit free of charge
•Tow cars post 1965 will have to move to an adjacent car park (those getting there early will probably get close - those coming late may have a bit of a walk).
•Exhibitors need public liability insurance
•Those wishing to attend need to fill in a registration form that can be completed here http://www.fawleyhill.co.uk/register-vehicles/

Cheers
Ray
