Repair Cafe Leeds

We meet on the first Saturday of every month, from 12-4pm, at the former Bridge Street Church* on Bridge St. in central Leeds (LS2 7QZ)

We can attempt to repair most things, and usually have expert fixers of clothes, jewellery, electricals and computers. If you're not sure you want to bring something, try posting about it on the facebook event page!

We sometimes help with repair cafes in other areas of Leeds. Get in touch if you'd like one where you live!

*Don't go to the new Bridge St. Church on Rider Street!

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.
