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.

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

Door Hinge Colour

OK peeps, who's got some door hinges that haven't been repainted?

What colour were they from new? Were they black? :?

Whoever's repainted mine did a good job of removing the old paint underneath. I know they shouldn't be blue like mine were. :roll:

Mine appear to be black, I don't think they've been re-painted!

Mine are black, if you ignore the rust.

Ours were black but we think they were repainted. We have repainted them silver at the moment.

Ok, I've found out they were silver originally. :thumbup:
