Repair Week, 20-26 March 2023: Join the Fixing Revolution
Repair Week returns to London 20-26 March, with over 50 repair workshops to help people gain, grow and perfect their repairing skills - saving money and helping fight climate change. Many are FREE, so check out your nearest ones and join the trend to mend this March.
Repair Week is getting even bigger and better this year. Event hosts running workshops this year include Beyond Retro, the Royal College of Art, Hackney’s Castle Climbing Centre and Vivobarefoot.
“There are lots of free events across the capital, and free advice and hacks if you can’t get out to a workshop in person, or you live outside London. Although there is also a lovely community spirit to be found in local repair workshops if you can get to one.” Rebecca Child, Repair Week campaign manager
