Edinburgh is a beautiful city, filled with beautiful things and in August; a whole lot of beautiful people. Edinburgh Festival Fringe is the largest arts festival in the world, bringing flocks of people from all over the globe to check out a dizzying number of live stand-up, theatre and musical performances.
All these people, however beautiful, create a significant amount of CO2 as the Scottish capital fills to the brim with cars, busses and traffic. This is why we have introduced the Festival Fringe Liftshare Award which aims to celebrate the diverse artistic talent that makes Edinburgh so desirable to visit in August, by inviting them to use their talents to raise awareness of lowering emissions during the festival.
Our latest entry comes from Abbie Murphy who will be taking to the Fringe stage under the moniker, Stephanie Vange.
Stephanie is a delightfully naïve Essex girl in pursuit of a celebrity lifestyle and willing to go to some great lengths to promote herself to the masses. In this award entry clip, Stephanie find herself feeling the pressure to drive well with a police car close behind her.
We’re all for it, driving more consciously can help you save some cash and lowers emissions at the same time!
Abbie’s show is called Have a Word and is on at the Laughing Horse @ The Counting House between August 7th and 30th (excluding Wednesday 19th) at 13:20.
