Volcano Theatre occupies a visually and symbolically central position on Swansea’s regenerating High Street. Initially, the site was the location of the attractive Lewis Lewis store, which was one of the few notable buildings to survive the Blitz. After suffering fire damage in the 1960s, it was finally demolished in the early 1970s and replaced by the current building, which went on to become Swansea’s Iceland food store. In 2014, following the store’s relocation and the site having been empty for some time, plans were hatched to create a unique and dynamic arts and social space at the heart of the city. The building is now home to Volcano, a small, energetic and responsive arts company, and host to performances and events by many other artists and companies too.
Limited on street parking is available outside the venue on High Street. Parking is also available at the nearby High Street MSCP and Mariner Street car parks, both within short walking distance.
There is level access to the venue, which is all on one floor. Accessible toilet facilities are available and guide dogs are very welcome.
