Description

We are running another Restart Party/Repair Café this time in Old Street.

Our Restarters will help you diagnose the fault, give you tips on repairing and help you to repair your own broken small electrical and electronic devices! This session is all about learning how to repair your item together so be prepared to get stuck in!

We will also have Dr Bike on site who will be repairing and checking bicycles, so please bring your bike as well!

If you can please book a ticket to let us know what you’re bringing in advance. There are no time slots so you may have to wait for a turn with a fixer.

We’d also welcome anyone who just wants to come and learn more about us, especially potential volunteers!

You take responsibility for your own gadget and data, so please back it up to be safe. If you have something to be fixed please come by 2:30pm so there is time to work on it.
