Volunteers at a Restart Party fixing devices, cropped on hands


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 electronic waste.

The next Leicester Restart Parties in 2017-2018 are on Saturday 21st April and 9th June with venues to be allocated closer to the date.

For the upcoming Restart Party, it will be at Tesco Extra Community Space in Beaumont Leys.

For Free car park, you are advised to meet the strict time limit of Tesco car park.

You are invited to tell us by a message on Leicester Fixers the item you are planning to bring so we can do a prior assessment

About the group

Leicester Fixers

Leicester Fixers is a community of problem solvers - amateur and professional repairers and non-repairers - that work together to mend the broken and learn more about repairs.

Every four to six weeks, usually on a Saturday, we run community repair events called Restart Parties where anyone can come to get help to repair a range of items. These events are entirely run by volunteers and are free to attend.  However, we encourage donations to ensure we can keep running repair events in the future.

We also meet every Tuesday for Open Hacknight at the Leicester Hackspace and provide support to people who need their items repaired and contacted us directly through our Facebook page.

We participate in online, local, regional, national and international conversations to inspire repair practices, encourage consumers to buy for longevity and to reduce the numbers of items going to landfills.

We focus primarily on electrical items repair but welcome repair of other items. Such as:

  • Clothing / Textiles
  • Bike repairs
  • Toys / Furniture
  • Computers
  • Phones
  • Etc..

In fact, if it's broken, feel free to bring it along! We can have a go at fixing it together or at the very least, advise and provide suggestions on what your best course of action might be. We only ask that you let us know prior to the event via our Facebook page or by email so we can do a prior assessment before the event.

In 2018/2019, we delivered the Leicestershire Outreach Programme, an initiative funded and supported by Leicestershire County Council. We reached out to six communities across the county so they too can self-organise to bring repair events to their community. We provided the tools, the skills, the training and the insurance for your community to run repair events.

So, if you live in any of these areas - Coalville, Loughborough,  Hinckley, Market Harborough, Melton Mowbray, LutterworthYou can also join the Facebook Groups associated with each area to start the conversation about how to repair our everyday items and find out about the next event.

Be the person who helps to make community repair events a feature of their community, someone who inspires the people living in their local area to mend their broken items and one who helps reduce the items going to landfill. We can't wait to hear from you!
