The Slightly Delayed Big 60th+1 Birthday Party of the Portafold (12th International Portafold & Ansfold Gathering) (i.e. 2021)

Help us set a new world record at the huge 60th+1 birthday party!

Ironically, the current record is 59 Portafolds and Ansfolds (we set that at the 2016 Newbury Retrofestival), so we want to smash this by getting well over 70 there this time. We have a lovely 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 13th, 14th, 15th of August 2021 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 (07771544419) to get your pitch saved.

You're back!

Any talk that's not covered by the other forums.

Hi Matthew, this is fantastic, I haven't been able to access this message board for ages! I don't know why. I'm very pleased to be back in touch. Thanks for your reply to the hinge-tape issue, 2" gaffer-tape was exactly what I ended up using, it seems fine.

Many apologies for the site being down. I'll be sending apologies to all the members tonight, hopefully, if I get enough time.

We had to switch off the board because we didn't have the time to maintain it (basically remove the spam and porn entries). I should have the time now to keep up the high standards that I require from the site so it should be up from now on. I do have an upgrade to perform later tonight but that shouldn't take more than an hour (hopefully!).
Wanted: Any original Portafold, Ansfold or Mini-Motel brochures, adverts or magazine articles.
Also, any chassis numbers for the above caravans!

Hooray - you're back :D

This has made me ridiculously happy. I've had the site in my bookmarks toolbar and kept checking back in regularly - so good to see you back!

I have so many questions - the Ansfold has been sitting on the drive whilst I was sidetracked by another project (the arrival of No. 4 son!), but now the weather is better I'm planning on doing some work to it.

Is Wroughton on this year? If so would a wrecked Ansfold be welcome? How many people are planning on going this year?

Best wishes
