We host two “Restart Parties” – free community repair events – in London a month, usually one near Camden and one near Brixton. On invitation, we conduct repair events and other kinds of activities, the costs covered by host organisations. Contact us if you would like to host one.

Take back control of your e-stuff, never feel victim to obsolescence again. Slow laptops, broken printers, smartphones, coffee grinders, you name it! Come to the event, and help participants learn how to repair what they bring. We help you learn how to fix all kinds of devices, starting with troubleshooting, advising on spare parts if necessary and more.
Please arrive before 4pm if you would like help and remember: we're happy to help for you to learn how to repair. Please bring food/snacks/drinks to share: repairers get hungry!
We are not repair professionals, and Restart Parties are a community self-repair space. Attending means that you take responsibility for your own gadget, your own data, so please do not forget to back-up your data.
