Large gatherings of 2-300 people took place in hired halls. The Blackley Insitute on Rochdale Road was used several times until it was demolished.
Cheetham Town Hall was then hired until about the early 1980s, when Manchester Council sold it. This building is close to St.Chad’s Church and today it is a restaurant.
During these functions, the stage was adorned with Lithuanian flags and a large ‘Vytis’ about 1 metre tall. Here is a picture of what remains of that shield.
