Repair Cafe Wales, Cathays

Need something fixing or want to fix things for other people. Get involved.

Sherman Theatre is delighted to host Repair Café Wales – Cathays on the first Saturday of every month.

Repair Cafe Wales is a collection of volunteers who get together and fix items that the public bring in, for free. Their goal is to reduce landfill waste, foster a feeling of community, and save people some money in the process. So, if you have a broken toaster, or bike, or clothes, or any household item really; don't buy a new one, just bring it to the Repair Cafe and get it repaired for free!

Typical repairs include; basic bicycle maintenance, electrical appliance repair, computing assistance, sewing, ornament repair, and woodworking; though they will have a look at most things (except microwaves).

Repair Café Cathays is hosted in our foyer on the first Saturday of every month. The Repair Café will run from 10am-1pm, with no further big repairs being taken on after 12.30pm so the session doesn’t overrun.

Got any questions? Just drop Repair Café Wales a message on Facebook and they will do their best to ensure a repairer is available to fix your item.

More fixers are always welcome – come along even if it is just to find out what is going on, and tell your friends. See you there!
