Fixfest UK is now open!
As we announced back in March, our biennial UK gathering for community repair is going online this year. We’re incredibly excited to announce that Fixfest UK starts on the 4th of June and that tickets are now available!
Join us online for a series of engaging online events curated by you and for you - the tinkers, fixers and waste preventers of the UK!
Fixfest UK is aimed at people who are actively involved in community repair. That means folks who organise and/or volunteer at Restart Parties or Repair Cafes or any other fix-focused community events.
We’re making the most of the online format by splitting Fixfest UK into 11 separate sessions over the course of a month. We’d encourage you to come to as many sessions as you can, but you’re free to pick and choose those that interest you most.
