Lithuanian Culture Centre in Puńsk
The Lithuanian Culture Centre in Puńsk opened in 1956. Since its beginning, it has attracted singers, musicians, dancers and actors of barn theatres. People come to the Centre to attend lectures on various subjects and take part in chess and draughts tournaments. When they have a free evening, farmers read newspapers and listen to the Lithuanian radio in the Centre. Moreover, the Centre has organised exhibitions, meetings with writers, readings of fairy tales to children, and Lithuanian film shows. Nowadays, there are active eight teams, such as theatrical and dance groups, as well as a choir and a small ethnographic museum. The Culture Centre is also a co-organiser of the Festival of Barn Theatres.
