The Slightly Delayed Big 60th+1 Birthday Party of the Portafold (12th International Portafold & Ansfold Gathering) (i.e. 2021)

Help us set a new world record at the huge 60th+1 birthday party!

Ironically, the current record is 59 Portafolds and Ansfolds (we set that at the 2016 Newbury Retrofestival), so we want to smash this by getting well over 70 there this time. We have a lovely 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 13th, 14th, 15th of August 2021 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 (07771544419) to get your pitch saved.

I've just spoken to the boss of Retrofestival and he's confirmed the dates for next years show are the 10th-11th August 2013, so therefore you can stay 9th-12th August 2013.

Get your name down early and lets break all known records for Portafolds and Ansfolds!

Hi Matthew,

Mark us two down for this one please. Just had a good weekend at the Hayride a fair few 'Folds were in attendance. There were 3 side by side on our plot and another just a few metres away with more dotted around the site.

Cheers

John

The cost for exhibitors this year is just £3!

To give you an idea how good value this is, the cost for getting in as a member of the public is £12 for a single 'day' ticket, £17 for an 'evening only' ticket to see the live music or £42 for a weekend ticket. A caravan pitch for the weekend is £35.
So for a couple wanting to see the show for the weekend would be £119 for two weekend tickets and a caravan camping pitch.

So, £119 worth of show for just £3!!!

Email me to get yourself on the list.

Anybody going from the Portsmouth/Southampton area on the Friday morning? We could all go together and hold up the traffic.
