The Big Fix


Do you have a broken item that is in need of repair? Perhaps you have a not-so-hot kettle or a laptop that's running slow?

Come along to The Big Fix and see if your item can be mended for FREE!  This event is run by Exeter Repair Café alongside Devon County Council and will be Devon's largest ever Repair Café.

Our aim is to break the current UK record for most items repaired in one day, so dig out any fixing, sewing and mending that you may have been putting off and we can help!  There will be expert volunteer menders on hand who have a range of skills from tech experts to sewing extraordinaires.

Also at the event:

  • Teddy Bear Hospital for any poorly soft toys.
  • The Restart Project will be running a workshop to show you how to fix your own tech, from consoles to headphones.
  • Junk modelling sessions with Exeter Scrapstore.
  • Get advice on your Upcycling projects with our professional Upcyclers.
