Heroes Centre


Helensburgh Heroes
Helensburgh Heroes is currently creating a Digital Academy & Entertainment complex - The Heroes Centre. The Centre will be situated in Helensburgh, birthplace of John Logie Baird, and will provide a centre of excellence for people of all ages to develop the skills required to utilise today’s video and internet technologies. The Heroes Centre will offer a practical, fun and inspiring ‘hands on’ approach to creative video and content creation. This whole project is about aspiration and opportunity. The Centre will also provide much needed facilities for the local community and will provide access to the latest in digital film and entertainment programming. At the Centre's heart will lie the Wall of Fame. An awe inspiring three storey Wall dedicated to honouring the many men and women that have contributed to today's society in so many positive ways and who have links with the area.
