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.

Better late than never!

Owned for nearly 12mths now, and fast approaching the finished cosmetic overhaul, here's a pic of mine....

Yeah... bottom half was burgandy when I bought it, same as the legs (which are now silver). Used Dulux exterior gloss, colour matched to the car by B&Q

Interesting I tow mine with a 1256 Vauxhall Viva but when we load the van up it struggles with the extra weight, perhaps it needs an overhaul!!

I'm a bit naughty with mine, and load the heavy stuff towards the back of the compartments to help lower the nose weight and make it a little easier on the car!
