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.

Painting my Portafold

Post by vauxhallbitz » Thu, 26 Mar 2009, 10:47 pm

Hello all,

Finally got round to painting the Portafold after much research decided to brush paint it with International Toplac boat paint.

Finished the first coat in two days now need to let it harden so that it can be rubbed down for the final coat. I found the best method is to work with someone and for one person to roller the paint on and the other to follow close behind with a short bristle pad, the finish is unbelievable if you take your time.

This paint is quite expensive but is very easy to work with once you understand how it flows.

I am very pleased with the results and will post pictures once the final coat is on and I have worked out how to do it!

Roll on the summer!!
