East Ham Library, 328 Barking Road, E6 2RT
Saturday 13 August between 11am – 2pm.

Do you have an item that needs repairing? Bring it along!

Repainting an item is much better than binning it – better for the wallet and the environment.

Join us for our free Repair Café where our experts will help you repair your broken household items including small electrical appliances, digital devices, clothing and bicycles.

Refreshments are provided so grab a drink on us and watch our repairers give live ‘How to…’ demonstrations throughout the event.

Holey jumper? Ripped coat pocket? Trousers in need of a hem?

Our skilled textile repairers will be offering free clothing repairs, so bring along any items in need of a bit of TLC and we’ll help extend its life that little bit longer.

There’s no need to buy new with our electrical repairers on hand!

Learn how to repair your broken digital devices like your phone, laptop or tablet.

They’ll be on hand to work their magic on your broken home appliances, electrical toys and more. So bring them along for a free repair!

Our bike specialists will be on hand offering FREE…

  • Bike safety checks
  • Brake and gear adjustments
  • Minor repairs
  • Notification of other work required
  • Advice on maintenance

Things to know before attending

  • Bring devices charged and with power leads/ adapters
  • Bring all parts of the device (not just the part that is broken)
    • Due to the need of replacement parts, not all items will be fixable on the day. In this instance, advice will be given by our experts with an opportunity to return with the replacement part to the next Repair Café to complete the repair
  • Arriving well before the advertised end time is advisable if you have an item in need of repair
