Princess Pumpalot: Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2013
February 25th, 2013
We are delighted to announce that the world premiere of Princess Pumpalot (The Farting Princess) will take place at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in August 2013. It will be a family show staged each morning.
Based on the book for children by Robin Mitchell (of The Cadies and Witchery Tours), the stage show will be co-produced and directed by Liam Rudden.
Robin Mitchell said, Princess Pumpalot is making a big stink. I am asking everyone who buys a copy of the book to take a photo of themselves pulling a Princess Pumpalot face. Well, this has really taken off and I am now receiving photos from all over the world (most recently from Argentina, New Zealand and Canada). You can see a selection of the Princess Pumpalot pose photos on FLICKR. I am really delighted that we are now going to have a stage show based on the book.
The dates and venue will be announced shortly.
Copies of the book Princess Pumpalot (The Farting Princess) are available on this site.

Halloween Tours with the Cadies & Witchery Tours often involve a few extra surprises, including appearances that the guides do not even know about or do they? All in all it is a fun week full of ghosts, ghouls and giggles.

New book published: Princess Pumpalot (The Farting Princess)
July 15th, 2012
Our new book, Princess Pumpalot (The Farting Princess) is published on Monday 16th July 2012.
The book is aimed at children but I’m sure adults will enjoy it too. Written in the style of a screenplay, Princess Pumpalot (The Farting Princess) is a funny wee story which farts along at a great pace.
On the occasion of her 13th birthday, Princess Pumpalot is presented with the key to the cabinet. This is no ordinary key and this is no ordinary cabinet. The cabinet contains 32,141 tins of magic beans . . . beans that make you fart.
Competing to take Princess Pumpalot to the Royal Birthday Ball are twin brothers Prince Niceavia and Prince Nastavia. Who will win this battle and what the heck is a low-flying gnome?
All (and more) will be revealed in this cheeky little book.

The Speyside Sessions
June 21st, 2012
All of the ghouls at the Cadies & Witchery Tours send hearty congratulations to former ghostly guide, actor Kevin McKidd (Brave, Rome, Trainspotting) for his part in the SPEYSIDE SESSIONS.
A group of talented musicians led by Kevin and his best friend James D. Reid gathered together in the Scottish Highlands over the course of one intense winter week, recording over two dozen traditional Scottish folk songs. All the tracks were recorded as live performances in singular continuous takes to capture the mood of the moment and the spontaneous atmosphere of the sessions.
The resulting album, THE SPEYSIDE SESSIONS, is now available with all profits going to SAVE THE CHILDREN.
