Abbey Repair Cafe

Fri 5 Jul 2024, 4:00pm – 7:00pm

Abbey People and the Museum of Technology are partnering to bring you a Repair Café on Friday 5th July!

Our team of experienced volunteer repairers can take a look at your broken items including small household appliances, clothes and other textiles, electronic items, bikes, jewellery, and much more.

Repairs are FREE, and donations are welcome to support more Repair Cafe and climate action events in Abbey. Hot drinks, cakes and biscuits will also be available.

We recommend booking your item in, as there will only be a few walk in slots on the day.
