April Fool: Farts to Power School Generator

A blast from the past!

AN Edinburgh school, after reading the children’s book, Princess Pumpalot: The Farting Princess, has come up with the novel idea to ‘use farts to power the school generator'.

It’s understood one of the science classes has rigged up a hollow cylinder in the toilets to capture everyone’s farts in a hermetically-sealed container. Once enough gas is collected, it feeds directly into a power generator.

We've had a blast this year at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe performing Princess Pumpalot: The Radio Show – Live on Stage! at Sweet Venues in the Grassmarket.

A BIG thank you to everyone who attended the 2016 show. We had great audiences including a number of "regulars" or "Pumpalites" as we sometimes call them.

The cast of #Fart2016 was Julie Heatherill as Princess Pumpalot, David Mairs as Guffy, Robin Mitchell as Cookie Crumble and The Toilet of Truth as himself.

The Show Must Go On!

Robin Mitchell as Cookie Crumble

The old saying, The Show Must Go On, came true for Edinburgh writer Robin Mitchell when a key cast member dropped out of his Edinburgh Festival Fringe play Princess Pumpalot: The Radio Show – Live on Stage! due to illness with only 48 hours until the opening show.

Several attempts were made to secure another actor to take the part in the play at Sweet Venues but to no avail, so Robin stepped onto the boards to save the day.
