The wide repertoire of the duo spans from Bach, Piazzolla's tango music to their own arrangements of pop classics.

Several contemporary composers have written for and dedicated works to the Katona Twins.
JEREMY HARDY: LIVE 2017
Sat 6th May 2017 at 20:00 £14.00
Jeremy Hardy is in his 4th decade as a stand-up this year. That's a more dramatic way of saying he started 33 years ago and, without a lottery win, probably has at least another 33 years to go. In 2014, the tenth series of Jeremy Hardy Speaks to the Nation was broadcast on Radio 4. He is also well known for his appearances on The News Quiz and I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue. Indeed, Alan Bennett recently said he likes him "but he's only on the radio".
However, Jeremy isn't only on the radio, his television credits include: Jack Dee's Election Helpdesk (BBC2), QI (BBC1), Mock The Week (BBC2), Grumpy Old Men (BBC1), Back In The Day (BBC2), Not Tonight With John Sergeant (BBC2).
He is also on the road all year round and has never stopped doing live shows since 1984. After briefly hibernating in the winter, he's back out on the road in 2017.

"In an ideal world, Jeremy Hardy would be extremely famous, but an ideal world would leave him without most of his best material."

MITCH BENN: DON'T FEAR THE REAPER
Sat 23rd September 2017 at 20:00 £14.00 | £12.00
It’s been a morbid time for "the country's leading musical satirist" (The Times); he's turned 46 - over the hill by anyone's standards - his personal life is in turmoil, and his childhood heroes are dropping like flies. At times like these, a man feels the Reaper creeping up on him… But is death anything to fear? And is it really the end? (Yes. Yes, it is, sorry!) Mitch confronts his - and YOUR - mortality with hilarious (and tuneful) consequences. Join him! It's time you're not getting back!
Mitch has been a regular on BBC Radio 4's The Now Show for more than a decade and has presented many radio specials. Following on from the success of Mitch Benn Is The 37th Beatle, a further three specials on music icons Bob Dylan, David Bowie and Elvis have recently been broadcast - The Freewheelin’ Mitch Benn, Mitch Benn Is The Fat Pink Duke and Mitch Benn Has Left The Building. He also co-presented with Harry Shearer BBC Radio 2's 'Anatomy Of A Guitar' and presented ‘Spank The Plank' for BBC Radio 4. He is currently working on a 40th anniversary special of Derek & Clive, again for BBC Radio 4.
Mitch is also the author of two novels, 'Terra' and 'Terra's World' both published by Gollancz and co-author with Jon Holmes of 'The Twitter History Of The World' the paperback edition of which was published by Prion Books.
"Intelligent and funny writing both of music and gags... a must see show"
"Well crafted, well sung, his songs are just plain funny"
"Song after song of exquisitely crafted satire"
