We host two “Restart Parties” – free community repair events – in London a month, usually one near Camden and one near Brixton. Friends in other parts of London are starting to host Restart Parties, we will list them here too. Our community events last three hours, but if you want help with a device, we strongly recommend you arrive during the first two hours.
We also host monthly skillshares for women and Restarter volunteers.
You can subscribe to our London calendar in iCalendar format: download it here.
