Cambridge's Next Repair Café

Cambridge Repair Café at the 2024 Cambridge Festival

Date: Sat 23 March and Sun 24 March
Time: Sat: 10am – 2pm, Sun 1pm – 4pm
Venue: King's College

Where exactly?

Our Repair Café will be inside a marquee on the grass in front of King's College on King's Parade.

There'll also be hands-on creative activities, stories and practical ideas on site to help explore how nature might guide us to build a greener, fairer and more connected future - all integral to What would Nature Do? An Imaginarium Takeover at King's

What can I expect at the 2024 Cambridge Festival Repair Café?

Our repair volunteers will be on hand to help fix your broken and worn toys and accessories, kid’s bikes, jewellery, clothes, electricals and all sorts of household items. We'll do our best to fix your item but If we can't, we'll try and suggest a next step.

Please note: We won't be taking on TVs or microwaves as we won't have a specialist on the team. And we don't usually take on mobile phone or tablet repairs as there are several reliable repair businesses locally.

Should I book?

We strongly recommend booking your item in advance - this enables us to do background research and make sure you have the most appropriately skilled repairer working on your item. We'll keep a few walk-in repair slots for the day, and will do our best to fit your item in if you are unable to book in advance.

Bookings will open here from Monday 12 February and at Cambridge Carbon Footprint and at the Cambridge Festival.

Do I need to pay?

Repair Cafés are free events, but we are grateful for any donations (cash please, we don't have a card reader) so we can cover our costs and keep our toolkit fully resourced.

Refreshments

We won't have our usual yummy cakes and drinks on sale, please top up at one of the city centre eateries.

We continue to support groups in Cambridgeshire villages who run their own Repair Cafes, and run training sessions for new groups in Cambridgeshire who would like to set one up locally.
