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.

I have just received some very interesting information from a very helpful chap at Glass's, the company who produce the car, motorcycle and caravan trade price guides. He checked back through their archives and checked each issue for the first and last mentions of the Portafold and Ansfold caravans.

The first listing of the Portafold that he could find was in the September to November 1966 issue and it only showed the price for a 1966 model, nothing earlier.

The last mention of the Portafold appeared in the September 1976 issue.

The first listing of the Ansfold was in the June 1977 issue.

with the last mention being in the June 1978 issue.
Wanted: Any original Portafold, Ansfold or Mini-Motel brochures, adverts or magazine articles.
Also, any chassis numbers for the above caravans!
