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.
The next Leicester restart parties in 2017-2018 are on Saturday 11th November, 9th December, 27th January , 10th March, 21st April and 9th June with venues to be allocated closer to the date
If you want to come and get help mending something:
Please arrive during the first two hours
Please bring devices charged and their power leads/adapters
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 event!
Please note Leicester Hackspace has moved to a new location:
First Floor, Unit 40,
Faircharm Trading Estate
Leicester LE3 2BV
The venue currently requires ascending a flight of stairs, so it may not be suitable for those in wheel chairs or who have mobility issues. Or for the repair of very heavy items that you cannot bring the stairs safely yourselves.
As the workshop has only recently been moved into it maybe also considered too dangerous for young children to run about in, so whilst children are most welcome at this family friendly event please ensure that any children that come can be relied on to be easily supervised.
