Party in the Park (London Fields)

Hosted by Hackney Fixers

Hackney Fixers Party in the Park is back!  

Enjoy fixing in the leafy surroundings of London Fields park for the fifth time since this annual event started in 2014.  We’ll have a marquee and yes, there will be mains power!

We’ll be alongside a council give and take event so it will be busy as usual. Hope lots of our regulars can make it. If you’re interested in volunteering come along at 11am to meet the team and have a short welcome session.

If you have a faulty hoover, slow laptop, misbehaving smartphone, or any faulty electrical or electronic device bring it along to the Restart Party and learn how to repair it! Take back control of your e-stuff, never feel victim to obsolescence again.

Our Restarters will help you to fix all kinds of devices, starting with troubleshooting, advising on spare parts if necessary and more. Don’t leave it to the last minute and remember: we’re happy to help you learn how to repair. We are not repair professionals, and Restart Parties are a community self-repair event. Please take responsibility for your own gadget, your own data, so do not forget to back-up your data.

Restart Party Do’s and Don’ts

DO

  • Check if your device is still within warranty, you may be eligible for a free repair, replacement or a refund. (Which? helps in the UK).
  • Take responsibility for your device and your data. Our volunteers are there to help you learn to fix your gadget, not to provide a free repair service. Please back up your data before the event.
  • Charge up your device and bring all leads and adaptors.
  • Get in touch with organisers if you have any questions about whether a fix is possible.

DON’T

  • Assume repairs will be successful. We help fix over half of devices at our events. Even if your repair is unsuccessful, you will learn about your device and why it failed.
  • Expect us to have spare parts. However we can help you source them. Often people visit twice: first we’ll help diagnose the fault, then you source the spare part, and on your return we’ll help you do a replacement.
  • Attempt a mobile screen repair just to save money. DIY mobile screen repair is a learning opportunity first and foremost. Please see our advice page first.
  • Bring a microwave.
