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.

Portafold Windows

How do you replace the front window in a Portafold?.... I came crashing back in from the beer tent at the rally this weekend and forgot to undo one of the thumbscrews that holds the window up, and as I pulled the other side the frame tried to twist and broke the glass.....I think perspex might be safer...

Hi,

A friend of our's recently had some help putting up his Portafold with the result of a broken window, as some idiot climbed into the van to erect it. He has managed to get it replaced by some company in Petersfield - obviously too far away for you. Haven't had a chance to speak to him and just heard through the grapevine but if you want more details let me know and I can give him a ring.

Any specialist glass company should be able to replace it.

Good luck and drink less next time!!!! or close the window before you go to the beer tent!

Vanessa
