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.

Hi! Thank you :)

It was car paint. My dad was a classic car restorer. I believe the manufacturer is Movac. The colours are Standard Triumph Wedgewood Blue (to match the car) and Land Rover Limestone (the creamy colour). It's lasted very well. We did one primer coat with standard cream primer, and then two coats of each top coat. That was quite a few years ago now and we've not had to redo it. The only issue is a couple of scuffs where the windows touch the walls when it's folded, but hardly noticeable.
