The Wethercentre: Tim Martin's Departure Lounge

Tim Martin, founder of the pub chain JD Wetherspoon, decides to act philanthropically by trialling a ‘Wethercentre’. Modelled on a monastery, this pub and brewery accommodates those in need; providing housing and facilities in return for the production of 'Wetherale'. Furthermore, weather is used to create different drinking environments to promote the sale of drinks and attract tourists and customers.
