As the nation prepared to take a leap into the unknown at the end of March 2019, Volcano presented a week-long festival of contemporary small-scale work that celebrates our cultural connections with Europe.  An eclectic festival that serves as an antidote to these toxic political times and as a reminder of our cultural debt to countries beyond these islands.

Featuring performances, films, exhibitions, installations and events from Wales and other European nations.
