Volunteers at a Restart Party fixing devices, cropped on hands


PLEASE NOTE: we will only go ahead with this event if it seems safe closer to the time – we will make a decision in late December on this.


Wrap up the mid-winter festive season with our twelfth-night Restart party. A chance to help make those newly-broken gifts get some actual use.

This will be an indoor, in-person event in a well-ventilated and controlled space – but is subject to alteration if needed. We’ll set up online booking for repairs soon. We’ll be at our usual venue between Broadway and Bec in Tooting, but do check back since we’re exploring alternate venues for future use.

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.
