The Heroes Centre on Sinclair Street in Helensburgh offers an Exhibition Area, 1950s style Cafe - Hucksters- dedicated to actress Deborah Kerr, Visitor Centre and Retail Area, all of which focus on the contribution that culture, the arts and modern media can make to improve the quality of life for the people of Scotland.
John Logie Baird, father of television, was the catalyst for the creation of both the Helensburgh Heroes charity and the concept of the 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 uses the central themes of innovation, aspiration and inspiration to nurture and encourage community participation.
We believe the Centre will inspire current and future generations to do great things by having the arts, education, innovation and community at its heart.
