Any excuse to go to the Fringe and testing Plan My Fringe was definitely important so off we went for our 4th Fringe together. This time with me pregnant with my second child and our first in tow!
Whilst there, along with ensuring that we had our usual great time we did our first bit of active advertising for Plan My Fringe. Complete with personalised "Plan My Fringe" t-shirts we joined the hundreds of flyer distributers.
Anyone who has ever been on the advertising side of the Fringe will tell you there are always stories, and it was no exception for us but some moments do really stand out.
One moment I often remember is passing a flyer to someone as they walked past who turned to me slightly taken aback and even a little annoyed and asked "What is this, it's clearly not a normal leaflet?" I explained what it did and he grinned from ear to ear saying – "This is quite possibly the most useful thing anyone has given me this month!"
My second favourite moment was when we had a gap which we had left for dinner in the schedule, so we let the app find a show for us on nearby. It was a Free Fringe event and it was a proper old fashioned audience interaction show. The artist looked at us all in our t-shirts and got us to stand up and explain what we did – our first Fringe performance.
