The volcano is the Scientology Org at 258 Deansgate, Manchester, M3 4BG. to which we will proceed at about 11:00.
The camera is where we do the post-raid photo, after which it's off to the pub (optional).

Here are street views of the meet up point:

This is a big weekend for Manchester Scientology according to their "spin doctor" Sam Butler. From his blog http://sam-butler.name/?p=44#more-44

So these are the most significant dates in the calendar:

March 13th - L. Ron Hubbard’s Birthday
L. Ron Hubbard was born on 13th March 1911. His birthday is celebrated by an international Scientology event, often incorporating an address by Mr Hubbard’s official biographer, Dan Sherman, giving Scientologists an insight into the life of their religion’s founder.

That covers the main dates in our calendar, but many Churches will also celebrate locally-significant dates such as the anniversary of their establishment, which in Manchester is 12th March, just one day before L. Ron Hubbard’s birthday. This year, the Church of Scientology of Manchester celebrated its 35th year in the city.
18 protesters consisting of anons, concerned parents, ex-scions showed up for the raid.

Lots of fliers given out and some general advice about organised Scientology to the Manchester population.

Lots of honks from passing motorists.
