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.


Any questions about maintenance or the restoration of your Portafold or Ansfold.

Having looked through a few of the photos of ppls portafolds is there a reason why you don't see any (well I didn't see any) with the interior walls carpeted ??? Say like you would in a vw camper van etc

There are a few that are trimmed internally with Veltrim, that seems to be the most popular covering. I was going to put some links but there's too many really. Best for you to do a search for 'Veltrim' in the box above.
Wanted: Any original Portafold, Ansfold or Mini-Motel brochures, adverts or magazine articles.
Also, any chassis numbers for the above caravans!

I have searched the net (incl eBay) for veltrim and the only results I can find are for ready made kits for VW Caravettes. Where do I buy it by the Metre???
