These are events where people teach each other how to repair their broken and slow devices – from tablets to toasters, from iPhones to headphones. They a network of groups - some use different names but they host the same kind of events. They are called "parties" because they have a fun, ad-hoc spirit where all are welcome to meet, mingle, and share in the fun of repair. To find a Restart Party near you see the London calendar.
