Portsmouth

Hosted by Repair Café Portsmouth

Need something repaired?

No repair too small. Bring along your broken bikes, toys, ceramics, clothes, textiles and small household and electrical appliances.

A team of volunteer expert repairers will be on hand to help you find fixes.

Everyone is welcome. The event is free, although we do collect donations so that we can keep running this great community event. Tea, coffee and cakes will also be available to purchase.

Hope to see you there.

Every 3rd Saturday of the month, except August, from 10.30am to 1pm.

(Entrance is on Queens Road.)

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.
