London Events

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. Download our London iCal.

Crucial reminders to those attend

  • Please arrive during the first two hours
  • Please bring devices charged AND their power leads/adapters
  • Please do not expect us to have spare parts or replacement mobile screens. This is not a free repair shop, it’s a pop-up community event! Often people attend twice, once to get advice on what part to buy and a second time to repair
