Patiently Waiting.

A year to the day was the last time that our 8-Foot-Robot-Cat and both Robot Dogs were out and about entertaining, educating, and inspiring children and young people in South Wales.

We all hope that the situation will improve soon, as schools are continuing to open, with the promise that venues and theatres will open their doors at some point in the future.

One of the biggest discos we did this year was the Brangwyn Hall, Swansea. We had to use the full PA rig to cover it, what we would normally use for an outdoor event. 

The most usual wedding disco, this year was by a lighthouse in Usk. The furthest out gig was Hereford Racecourse. The most memorable disco was the foreign exchange students at the Cardiff Metropolitan University.

The KATT has the annual appearance of the Swansea Science Festival at the National Waterfront Museum. The 8-Foot-Robot-Cat worked perfectly however,  Mascot the Robot Dog was plagued with technical problems. This has been fully resolved, thank goodness.
