Repair Cafe Wales is collection of volunteers who get together and fix items that the public bring in, for free. Our 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 us and get it repaired for free!

Typical repairs include; basic bicycle maintenance, electrical appliance repair, computing assistance, sewing, ornament repair, and woodworking; though we will have a look at most things (except Microwaves as they are too dangerous).
Repair Café Cathays is hosted in The Sherman Theatre in Cathays. We’ll run from 10am-1pm, though we won’t be taking on any big repairs after 12:30pm or we’ll end up over running!

Got any questions? Just drop us a message on Facebook or Twitter, and we will do our 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!


Although some of our volunteers are experts, many are simply people who like fixing and tinkering. Others (like the founders!) aren’t practical at all but can organise; help with administration; or staff the front desk.
