The Birthday Party was month of performance, history and celebration in March 2013. Volcano ransacked its archive to bring you an interactive, retrospective adventure based on its 25-year history. With a whole host of Volcano people old and new. The project was based at 229 High Street Swansea, and featured a walk-in experience, performances and events.
