Brixton Restart Party @LDN Makerspace

Excited to be popping up in South London's first Makerspace. Just minutes from Herne Hill rail station, the "South London Makerspace is a social community workshop. It's for knitting, welding, woodwork, sculpture, programming, photography, 3D printing etc." - what better place for some community repair?

We help you learn how to fix all kinds of devices, starting with troubleshooting, advising on spare parts if necessary and more. Take back control of your e-stuff, never feel victim to obsolescence again. Slow laptops, broken printers, smartphones, coffee grinders, you name it. We will have tea for participants, but don't forget to bring some snacks and home-made food in support of repairers!

Closest tube: Brixton. Closest train station: Herne Hill

Please arrive before 1pm if you would like help and remember: we're happy to help for you to learn how to repair. We are not repair professionals, and Restart Parties are a community self-repair space. Attending means that you take responsibility for your own gadget, your own data, so please do not forget to back-up your data.

    Hi everyone, if you're coming from outside Brixton/Herne Hill, double check your travel options, as tomorrow a number of them are not working (including part of the overground connecting East-South London and the Thameslink in between St Pancras and Blackfriars). See you at South London Makerspace!

    I have a Motorola Atrix with a cracked screen - I've got a new one off eBay so hoping to replace it at the Restart Party. Looking forward to it!

    Hi, guys

    I will be giving a last chance to my Sony Ericsson Xperia mini, can I book it in? It is unbearably slow and getting worse by the day. I would like to clean all the crap that comes with it, like facebook. And then it needs Panda Touch! Thanks!

      We might have to do a factory reset or install alternative firmware, so please make sure to backup your contacts and data!

      Thanks! Backup is done already :) Looking forward to seeing you there, Janet!

    Looks a fantastic location, but I'm afraid this one just doesn't work for me. Hope it goes well!
