Southampton Repair Cafe is open on the first Saturday of every month (except January), from 10.30am-1.00pm.

Our next cafe will be on Saturday 5th August

Future dates: Saturday 2 Sept, 7 Oct (our 3rd Birthday!), 4 Nov, 2 Dec 2017. Note that on 7th Oct we will finish at the earlier time of 12.30am

 Repair cafe aims to keep everyday items away from landfill, save resources, give people the opportunity to learn new skills and build community.Our volunteer repairers will tackle small portable electrical items, portable wooden furniture, items needing glueing, jewellery, and bikes - along with sewing and mending, and advice on computer operation. All this plus a cuppa and a cake! Do come along with your items for repair, or if you are unsure what you need come along and ask. And if you can help in any way (repairers and general helpers most welcome!) please contact us.


If you would like to offer your skills as a repairer or general helper please don't hesitate - the more the merrier, it will help us expand the repair cafe! It's a very sociable event, there's a great buzz and we even pay expenses and give you free refreshments. We don't just need help on the day - if you could take on a task such as publicity or social media we'd be very pleased to hear from you. Email repaircafe[at]
