John Logie Baird, father of television, was the catalyst for the creation of both Helensburgh Heroes and the concept of creating a Heroes Centre.


He devoted his life to invention, creation and entrepreneurism. He had a belief, a vision and a spirit that was unwavering in its desire to succeed.


From the town that gave one of the world’s most famous sons, Helensburgh Heroes used the central themes of innovation, aspiration and inspiration to nurture and encourage community participation.


We believed it would inspire current and future generations to do great things by having the arts, education, innovation and community at its heart.


A Centre was created in the heart of the town at the end of 2017 but unfortunely was forced to close in late 2018, through no fault of Helensburgh Heroes. For a few brief months it had allowed the organisation to publicly and succesfully demonstrate its concept.
