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.

Well I bought a Portafold a couple of weeks ago! And I guess it was a bit of a homecoming for it....as my dad, Brian James, was the original maker. It needs a bit of work...but as my brothers now run Henleycraft I am hoping to get some help:)
I am really quite excited and have started to re-cover the seating and planning the overall restoration. I will post the my/our progress on here....lets hope we can make dad proud!

I've recently joined the forum, so forgive me if this has been covered before, but are the original portafold moulds still in existence somewhere?

No, long gone. And even if they were piled up in someones garden somewhere they'd be useless anyway with the ravages of time and the UK weather.
