Leicester Fixers

In Leicester, Leicester Fixers emerged as an umbrella to bring together all individuals and hobbyist interested in repair and learning.
It is a community of amateur and professional repairers and non-repairers that work together to mend the broken and learn more about repair.
They currently run Restart parties which are donation-based community events organised by volunteers to inspire people to mend their broken gadgets, buy for longevity and prevent electronics waste.
So if you have a broken vacuum cleaner, a faulty printer or more, Come and learn how to fix your stuff.
If you want to come and get help mending something:

  • 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! It is a place where you can learn about repair by collaborating with someone who have greater experience. We rely entirely on donations so any help is more than welcome.
