Hosted by Cambridge Area Repair Cafes

The World’s Biggest Repair Café, Sat 11th Nov, Wesley Methodist Church, Cambridge, 10am-6pm

Cambridge Carbon Footprint and Transition Cambridge are asking everyone to bring their faulty, torn, wobbly, and malfunctioning items to a huge repair party. Repair Cafes are free events that match experienced repairers with people who need stuff fixing.  The repairers help make people’s stuff last longer which means we use fewer resources and less energy to make new things. 

Please book your item in (gadgets, household items, bikes, clothes etc) by sending an email to telling us what you’d like to bring and the problem with it. Or fill in a simple online booking form at                   

The whir of the drills, smell of solder, tapping of hammers and patter of sewing machines will be blended with:

  • copious amounts of homemade cake
  • short talks from trailblazing companies and individuals like Patagonia, BuyMeOnce, and The Restart Project
  • upcycled craft workshops for children
  • FoodCycle will be serving free meals made from surplus food between 12:30-13:15
  • stalls from local artists selling upcycled Christmas gifts
