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.

Post by Admin » Mon, 22 Feb 2010, 10:27 pm

A Portafold has just come up for sale due to a family bereavement. It is being sold by Ben Venables and the caravan is situated on the Isle of Wight, not far from the ferry port at Cowes. Viewing is only available on Sundays and Mondays as Ben is not on the island himself. The photos below were taken circa 2003:

Bought in 1997 from The Folding Caravan Company, Blunsden, Swindon.
Currently located at East Cowes, Isle of Wight.
It's roadworthy and has been used within the last 2 years. Tyres are good, all lights work etc.
The tow hitch has been regularly greased and is fit for use.
It has new hinges fitted on all joints and has been repainted inside and out in cream.
