An important element in maintaining contact between members is the Society’s publication (at least twice a year), of its journal Tiltas (‘The Bridge’).
Tiltas contains original articles about Lithuanian history, politics, culture, business and finance, British-Lithuanian links, the history of Lithuanians in Britain, film and book reviews, poetry and interviews with prominent political, business and cultural figures.
The journal is becoming recognised as a valuable resource for those interested in Lithuania and British-Lithuanian relations.
Members receive Tiltas free of charge.
