In the Autumn of 1974 the Quality of Life Experiment's Dumbarton Neighbourhood Group had been approached by local residents to suggest that with the Groups help the Burgh Coucil could develope Overtoun House, a 19th Century "Scottish Baronial" mansion that overlooks the town,  as a centre for arts and sports..The house  had been used as a maternity hospital  in post war years, closing a few years earlier and was well known to the whole area..A wide variety of activities for the house and it's grounds were successfuly demonstrated.  Among them was it's use as a base for the Community Drama Project, 7:84 Capital Follies.
