Sparks Repair Cafe: The Reparium

Regular Repair Cafe sessions:

Every Sunday from 11:30 - 16:30

We have our own dedicated workshop called The Reparium; alongside repair cafes, The Reparium also facilitates electrical recycling and is working towards a cable library through which cables are sorted and offered free for those who need them.

The Reparium is soon to have a shop which sells electricals which have been rescued from waste facilities, surplus from businesses and donations to our repair cafe; many of which will be repaired or refurbished in house and sold at low rates with all money going back in to the running of our group.

Please contact for any questions or interests in getting involved, if you have items in need of repair, or with ideas on improving our service further.

Restart Party Do’s and Don’ts


  • 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 here to help you learn to fix your gadget, not to provide a free repair service. Get involved!
  • Backup your data. We can’t be responsible for your cat pics, so please back up your device before you come. (Of course you already do this once a month, right?)
  • Charge up your device and bring all leads.
  • Get in touch with organisers if you have any questions about whether a fix is possible.


  • 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. But 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.
