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.

Matching Mini and Portafold

Post by Microhurtz » Thu, 16 Oct 2014, 8:22 pm

Hello everyone!
A quick snap of my Portafold, now repaired and resprayed to match my Mini. The Mini is a 1275 automatic and seems to tow the Portafold pretty well - certainly "round the block"

Finally got away in the Portafold. The Mini pulled it well; 60 mph up the M1 and 35mpg (remarkably) even with the auto box. I only get 37mpg normally.
Lots of smiles on the site in the Peak District. I found that one hinge each side on the side walls had broken but nothing fell out or off so just another job for the weekend.

Well, shiver me timbers, I'm beginning to look like a self publicist!
It's a long story but my Mini and Portafold will appear in the January printed issue of Practical Caravan magazine. Worse than that, they're in the on-line version already including the dodgy blazer I wore at the International Gathering.

I hope the printed version will have a few more pictures from the Gathering as Matthew made a load available and the mag were interested in The Gathering. Obviously.

Well, the self publicity marches on; my Portafold is in the Jan issue (3rd December) of Practical Caravan.
