He tells the story of his manager who would be behind the scenes and would ask for the door to be shut off stage as the draft was terrible. Never is this story more true when you visit the weatherspoons in Barnsley. The door will not keep shut. People are constantly shutting it and complaining of the cold bitter draft.
