12th – 17th October 2020
When 69% of Londoners told us that they’d fix more of their things if only they knew how – and almost half of them said they didn’t know where to get stuff repaired locally – well, we had to do something about it. Our first ever Repair Week has inspired 50 supporter organisations to get involved, and features events, tutorials, hacks, tips and tricks, as well as a showcase of some of London’s brightest and best #LocalRepairHeroes. We’re excited.
So much! Repair shops, brands, councils and many others are running repair events, video workshops and ‘how-to’ guides, offering discounts on in-store repairs, hosting panel discussions and much, much more. Check out the full schedule for the week – or just drop by and see what’s up next.
Got stuff to fix and don’t know where to start? We’ve created a ‘Londoners' guide to repair’ with a bunch of tips, tricks and hacks to get you fixing like a pro, as well as a mini directory of #LocalRepairHeroes who can fix things for you!Check it out
We’ve been bowled over by how many people have signed up for Repair Week, despite what everyone’s going through right now. Our partners have come up with some fantastic events and online content for you – and a couple are even offering special repair discounts for the week!Check them out
