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.

New awning

Post by The Gomersalls » Sun, 08 Mar 2015, 12:18 pm

We don't have an original awning with our Portafold so has anyone successfully used an alternative new one. Must be something quick to erect as we have a Jovi tent and Oztent which can both be adapted for longer stays or when the kids come with us, I'm thinking of one or 2 night stays when you might just need something to cook under or leave the chairs in the dry.

We also have a quechua base seconds which I think would work but again its the huge one! no good when space is limited and might be charged as an extra tent on some campsites rather than an awning.

There are quite a few threads about awnings, and this one seems to link to a few:

Wanted: Any original Portafold, Ansfold or Mini-Motel brochures, adverts or magazine articles.
Also, any chassis numbers for the above caravans!
