Hello and welcome to the Tunbridge Wells Repair Café website.
The website is currently under construction. We’re working as quickly as we can to bring you a website that gives you the answers to all your Repair Café questions.
You can find full details below regarding the Repair Cafe and what we provide and what you need to do to visit us. If you have any other questions please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org
Tunbridge Wells Repair Cafe Details
We are a volunteer-led community event where people with repair skills help mend items that no longer work. This helps prolong the item’s life and ideally prevents them being thrown away unnecessarily. The Repair Café team do this at no charge but if you would like to make a voluntary donation we welcome these as that helps cover costs and any surplus money goes to charity.
Our repair stations included clothing / textiles, electrical and mechanical items, computers, printers and IT (incl software), jewellery, knife sharpening and, well, anything else (except microwaves)!
Doors open at 9.45am and repairs commence at 10am and close at 1pm. The last repairs are accepted at 12.30pm or for a particular repair station when the waiting list exceeds our capacity, whichever is sooner. The Tunbridge Wells Repair Cafe is held at Trinity Theatre, Church Rd, Royal Tunbridge Wells TN1 1JP
Our upcoming dates are:
Sat 27th Jan 2024
Sat 24th Feb 2024
Sat 16th Mar 2024
Sat 27th Apr 2024
There is no need to book, it is first come first served. To save yourself time you can pre register before you arrive (link is below). You can of course register yourself online when you arrive if you have a smart phone or tablet, if not we can help you with this.
We operate a queue if there are no stations free and we can give you an idea of waiting time on the day. We ask that you only bring one item per person, if you did happen to bring more than one for repair, we will book in one and when you have had that repaired you are welcome to book in another if there is time and capacity.

We look forward to seeing you soon.
