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.

My Portafold

Post by harrys engines » Fri, 18 Jun 2010, 11:03 am

Hi there, the other day i got given a Portafold that has sat outside in a farmyard for 20 years, it needs new wheels and tyres but the bearings are ok, on the outside it is green and covered in algae etc...and i thought id try putting it up and had it done in 3 minutes!!!

Inside she is in quite good nick, I'll take it to steam rallies where I show my stationary engines..I ought to get a vehicle before I get a caravan but never mind!!! It looks very practical!

Apologies for the naff photo

Well done, anything free is always a bargain :D All you need to do now is come up with a cunning plan for getting drive from your stationary engine to the wheels of the Portafold and you wont need the car! :D

Thanks, the lack of a vehicle is the shortfall in my plan...

Well here's some more photos after a bit of a clean up. The lid and bottom will be done once it's folded up again.
