THE WEATHER CAFÉ is an immersive café installation that responds to the changing weather of the city. Inside, the shifting environment evolves as the wind blows, the rain falls and a thick cloud rolls underneath in an ever-changing orchestration of sound and imagery.

THE WEATHER CAFÉ presents the voices of over 100 people living and connected to Leeds. The installation acts as a barometer to reflect the emotional climate of the city.
