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.

NEC Classic Motor Show - 10th-13th November 2016

Post by Admin » Sun, 21 Aug 2016, 9:04 pm

For the first time in 5 years we will be having a stand at the NEC Classic Motor Show in Birmingham (10th-13th November 2016).

I am looking for applicants who are willing to bring their Portafold to the NEC on the afternoon of the Thursday set-up day, and help man the stand over the three days of the weekend show to talk to the public about Portafold caravans at the largest indoor classic car show in the country.

We will find a local hotel for the three nights, which means it's not the cheapest of weekends, you do get free entry into the show as exhibitors, but unfortunately they don't provide a hotel or your food!

If anyone is interested in being on the stand, please can you email me as soon as possible as I need to finalise who is going and book hotel rooms etc.

Many thanks to Sean, Ray, Si and Gemma for bringing along their Portafolds for the stand and their time manning the stand.
