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.

Idea for the under-roof/ceiling.

Any questions about maintenance or the restoration of your Portafold or Ansfold.

I spoke to a really helpful man in B&Q who happened to own fibre-glass boats, he said he also had terrible condensation problems with them, which he had vastly improved by using a type of polystyrene wallpaper. You fix it on with waterproof PVA (that doesn't require air to cure). I'm convinced so I am going to give it a go...I'll let you know what happens. I have a nice type of paper, with a pebbled effect.... :o He said to be sure to make sure the ceiling was clean and had been 'de fungicided' before putting the paper/poly on it. You can then paint the paper with any bathroom type of silk paint, that is watersoluble.
