Spring Forward Festival 2019

Fri 22 Mar 2019 to Sat 30 Mar 2019

As the nation prepares to take a leap into the unknown (or perhaps a fall backwards, or maybe just jumping on the spot) at the end of March 2019, Volcano presents a week-long festival of contemporary small-scale work that celebrates our cultural connections with Europe.

We are presenting 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.
