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.

7th International Gathering of Portafolds & Ansfolds (2015)

Post by Admin » Sun, 17 Aug 2014, 11:14 am

I've been given the dates for the 7th International Gathering, (i.e. 2015).

As we have Portafold's attending from outside the UK we've renamed to the 'International Gathering'.

We'll be at Retrofestival again as it's proving to be a very popular show with something for everyone. And for 2015 it will be at the Newbury Showground, Priors Court, Hermitage, Thatcham, West Berkshire RG18 9QZ; on the weekend of the 7th, 8th & 9th of August 2015.

There were 50 Portafolds & Ansfolds on display in 2014 so it's clearly the biggest Portafold event of the year and certainly not one to be missed.

It's a bit annoying that Retro Fest clashes with Super Nats. ........but it's got to be Retro Fest for us ! Count me in.

I've also had it confirmed, that unlike previous years, there will be a marquee with live music and a bar open on the Sunday evening for the exhibitors who are staying till Monday morning.

To give you an idea how much bigger the new site is, at White Waltham the show was about 40 acres. The Newbury Showground will give the show up to 177 acres to expand into!

Put us down for this one please, Matt!

Made sure I booked the days off at work this time. Have you sorted out the weather?

Cheers

Matthew, as I will have retired by the time of the Retro festival, I will stay Sunday night for a change.
