Restart Parties are pay as you feel community events organised by volunteers to inspire people to mend their broken gadgets, buy for longevity and prevent electronics waste.
This is the first Leicester Restart party in the 2018-2019 season at our home venue of Leicester Hackspace. More date will be announced in the near future with a new programme of regular events all around the county.
There is free parking on site, and attendees are reminded that this venue is on the first floor and requires ascending a flight of stairs and thus accessibility may be difficult for those with mobility issues. We hope that this will to be the case for other dates and venues later int he year.
If you want to come and get help mending something
You are well advised to message on Leicester Fixers or comment on the event page detailing the item you are planning to bring and what you believe the fault to be so we can do a prior assessment before the event.
AT THE RESTART:
Ensure to arrive at your allocated time slot if you’ve discussed the item poor to the event.
For Walk-ins with items to repair, our ability to help you will depend greatly on how many people are attending and have already booked slots. You are advised to arrive early and expect to wait to be seen.
For anyone else wanting to meet us without an item, we will be more than happy to chat to you and tell you what we are up to.
Please arrive during the first two hours
Please bring devices charged and their power leads/adapters and any media that will be required for testing.
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 repair event!
