AN EVENTS PROGRAMME TO CELEBRATE THE PAST & INSPIRE THE FUTURE

Helensburgh Heroes Centre Events Programme

Fun, Vibrant & Engaging Events

A wide ranging events programme ensures that the Heroes Centre caters for the whole community as it seeks to deliver an inspirational and creative learning space.

Importantly, the Heroes Centre will cross 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 can 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 is a series of events designed to help, inspire and encourage people to believe in themselves and their ideas.

Hosted by Helensburgh Heroes, we invite 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 closes with a short Q&A session.

We hope that the resulting stories of problems, solutions, obstacles and opportunities, told in a fun and innovative way will help inspire.

Each event will take place in front of a small audience at the Heroes Centre, 28 Sinclair Street, Helensburgh, G84 8SU. Timings may differ, but each event will usually commence at 19.00 and will last for approximately one hour.

Tickets are FREE for the first event and available on a First Come First Served Basis. The event is suitable for all ages and we are particularly keen for our younger members of the comunity to attend.
