Electrical repairs at this Saturday’s Repair Cafe…

Good news fellow fixers!!!


We have a new volunteer for Saturday… Mattia Cobianchi who in his own words “ain’t no McGuivor” but is going to be on hand to help with electrical repairs.

If you have something you would like help fixing please post a photo up on the facebook group with a description of what you think is wrong with it and he will be able to diagnose whether it will be possible to mend it on Saturday.

If you don’t do facebook email an image and description to and we will forward it to Mattia.

We will also have other volunteers with a variety of repair skills on hand to help you fix your things. Bring along broken jewellery, clothes and textiles that need mending by hand, with the tools or sewing machine we will provide.


There is no charge to come along to the Brighton Repair Café but we do accept donations towards the running costs and materials.

Next Repair Café postponed

Due to a wedding and an exhibition taking up all the organisers time we are having to postpone the next repair café.

It will now take place on Saturday 27th April in the basement of Bom-banes 

The theme will be textiles, clothing and jewellery.

Please contact us if you would like to come along or volunteer. We are especially keen to hear from people with other repair skills who can add a new dimension to the café.
