When do our Repair Cafes happen?

Our Repair Cafes are (usually!) held on the second Sunday of every month from March to December, 2-5 pm, but in 2021 we started in January and had another one scheduled for 14th February which unfortunately had to be cancelled due to lockdown. Since then restrictions have limited our sessions to March, April, May and July.

This year’s Repair Cafe dates:

Sunday 14th November (Restrictions permitting)

Sunday 12th December
