1991: Landsbergis visit

 One of the political figures around the time Lithuania restored its independence was Professor Vytautas Landsbergis. During his visit to the UK in October 1991 he found time to visit the Lithuanian Club in Manchester. The hosts were Lithuanian Conservative Party supporters but others came along too. Also attending was Laima Andriukienė who was studying at Manchester University and later was elected to Lithuania’s parliament “Seimas”.
