A Temple man’s story about a Princess with wind power is preparing to take centre stage at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe.

Robin Mitchell (50), is excited that his children’s book ‘Princess Pumpalot –the Farting Princess’ is soon to become a stage show at the prestigious arts festival.

Its creator is looking forward to its run at the 360 seater Assembly Rooms Ballroom.

He said: “It’s a big deal, I think it’s important to get it off to a really good start as I think there is big potential with the character. Possibly other books or shows. But one thing at a time, I just want to see how this run at the festival goes.

“The fact that it is such a prestigious venue which has been associated with the Fringe for so many years can only help.

“And it is in the Ballroom, quite fitting for the princess.”

Rehearsals start in mid-July, with six cast playing 11 parts, including a nine foot mechanical giraffe.

In the show, to mark her 16th birthday, Princess Pumpalot is given a key to a cabinet with tins of magic beans that make you fart.
