AN EVENTS PROGRAMME TO CELEBRATE THE PAST & INSPIRE THE FUTURE

Helensburgh Heroes Centre Events Programme

Fun, Vibrant & Engaging Events

A wide ranging events programme ensured that the Heroes Centre catered for the whole community as it delivered an inspirational and creative learning space.

Importantly, the Heroes Centre crossed age barriers with younger people introducing and engaging with older people leading to an atmosphere of inclusion, value and respect.

The Charity believes that the contributions and experiences of role models inspire current and future generations of Scots to do great things by placing technology, arts, education and innovation at the heart of its communities.

Tales from the Big Chair

Tales From The Big Chair was a series of events designed to help, inspire and encourage people to believe in themselves and their ideas.

Hosted by Helensburgh Heroes, we invited each guest speaker to discuss their lives and experiences in a ‘Actors Studio’ format select and they are also asked to nominate their own personal hero and share two pieces of advice – one that was given to them and one that they would like to pass on to others. Each event closed with an audience Q&A session.

We hoped that the resulting stories of problems, solutions, obstacles and opportunities, told in a fun and innovative way helped to inspire.

Each event took place in front of a small audience at the Heroes Centre, with each event usually lasting for 90 minutes.

Tickets were FREE and available on a First Come First Served Basis.
