This year we have teamed up with Alpkit to offer you a one-stop shop for your gear repair needs at ShAFF's Repair Cafe on Sunday 22 March. If you're on a mission to consume less, reuse more, or just save a few bob, make sure you dig out your ripped running trousers, broken buckles, frustrating zips, and that bike that needs a fettle, and bring them along to our sociable repair hub in the Outpost mezzanine. We've got a whole host of repair workshops for you too, to take your skills with you on your next adventure.

Here's what we have lined up for you:

The Alpkit Repair Station: The Alpkit team will be on hand to repair holes in your waterproofs, down and synthetic jackets, replace broken zips, take up trousers, repair straps and replace velcro and poppers.

10:00 - 13:30 Decathlon Sheffield will have their trusty bike mechanic and bike stand there to help you with advice and repairs. 

10:00 - 13:30 Made by Scavenger will have their Bisewcle in action up there and they need your pedal power and old climbing rope! They'll be turning it into a giant floor cushion for ShAFF 2021. Find out more at The Great Scavenger Bisewcle Challenge 

11:30 - 12:15 A Different Gear Bike Repair: The experts from A Different Gear will be on hand to help with bike repairs and advice, and will be offering a puncture repair workshop, Learn to Love Your Inner Tube at 11:30am.

12:30 - 13:15 The Buffalo Systems team will be sharing their Kit Repair Hacks for Extreme Adventures so you can take your skills out on your next adventure.

And don't forget, if you have gear you no longer need, bring it along to the Scavenger Preloved Kit Sale on Saturday or Sunday of the festival.

If you want to get together with your tribe and re-shape the world for the better, or if you enjoy adventures with a lighter footprint, check out our Acts of Rebellion festival itinerary.
