EVENTS // It's Chorlton Repair Café tomorrow!
Never heard of a Repair Café? It's a free meeting place where people get together to repair things.
The Chorlton Repair Café is a free to use, drop in community event, run by volunteers and open to all. Visitors can attend once a month to learn from expert volunteers the skills to fix broken clothes, furniture, electronics, bikes and technology. The types of items we can repair varies from month-to-month, depending on which volunteers are available. This month we have electrical items and clothing repairers.
There’s no need to book – just turn up on the day with your broken item. The event runs from 10am-12pm, and the last repair will be booked in at 11:30am.

While our volunteers are skilled in various repairs, they don’t offer a guarantee that your item can be fixed, nor will they single-handedly do the work for you! The Repair Café is all about getting people fixing things together – equally focused on sharing skills and meeting new people. We encourage everyone to stick around for a cup of tea and to chip in with advice and ideas for other visitors’ repairs.
We’re always looking for lovely people to get involved in the running of this event. If you’d like to volunteer on the day, or lend/donate some tools, please get in touch!
