Volunteers at a Restart Party fixing devices, cropped on hands


Our Repair Cafe has 28 repair stations that include household and garden electrical, mechanical, textiles, jewellery, knife sharpening, IT / computers and miscellaneous.

Doors open at 9.45am. We run monthly and last repairs are accepted at 12.30pm or when capacity has been reached. We close at 1pm.

So far we repair about 2 out of every 3 items brought in.

We’d love to see more people use the Tunbridge Wells Repair Cafe and especially young people and families so please spread the word and come and see us.

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.
