Volunteers at a Restart Party fixing devices, cropped on hands


Location change this time! This event is at Bedford Heights. Directions below.


Learn from our talented volunteers how to fix your broken toaster or moth-eaten jumper. Our volunteers will go through the problem with you and show you the tools and skills to get the job done, and they might even let you loose with a sewing needle or soldering iron! You'll need to stay with your item for the duration of the repair.

We can help with most household items such as: clothes, textiles, bikes, toys, jewellery, and general household repairs, help and tips.

Fixing slots are drop in: book in and turn up any time. You may have to wait for a Fixer to see you- but refreshments will be on hand. Last repairs will be accepted just before 4pm, and the event closes at 4.30pm.

Please remember our volunteers are giving us their time for free- they may not be able to repair some things so we might have to turn you away (we hope you’ll stay for a cuppa though!) If you would like to thank our Fixers, you can leave a ‘tip’ to buy them a well earned coffee (Or pint!)

When booking, include as much detail as possible about your repair. This will help us prepare for the day. You’ll need to bring any consumables such as spare parts too.

Our art, craft and haberdashery swop table is back, where you can donate leftover materials such as yarn, paint, trimmings, stamps, etc. Please help yourself to donated materials! Note you do not need to book for this activity.


Bedford Heights is located on Brickhill Drive. From the Sainsbury’s roundabout, turn left onto Manton Lane, and Bedford Heights is the second turning on the left after the traffic lights.

Follow signs for the visitors car park where there is free parking and disabled parking. If this car park is full, there is overflow parking in car park 2. This is a left turn past the entrance to the visitors car park.

Please avoid using the postcode in a satnav as this will take you to the rear of the building.

Once you have parked, follow signs for the conference entrance which is on the left. Please don’t go to main reception.
