Take it Away

Buy a musical instrument and accessories on interest free credit with Take it away


Take it away is an Arts Council initiative that aims to make musical instruments more accessible to children and young people by providing interest-free loans of up to £2,000. The scheme is open to parents buying an instrument for a child under the age of 18, but also 18-25 year olds who can apply in their own right. 

You can use Take it away to borrow between £100 and £2000 towards the costs of your chosen instrument, and you can also include music stands, sheet music and other accessories within the loan.  

You will need to pay a minimum 10% of the loan amount at the point of sale by debit or credit card (or cash/cheque with proof of identity). The rest is then paid back over nine months in equal instalments by direct debit. There is no administrative charge or handling fee when you take out the loan, so you will never be paying more for your purchase than the ticket price.

Applicants must be:

·        Either over 18 years of age and buying an instrument for a child under the age of 18

·        Or aged 18-25 years if buying for themselves

·        A permanent UK resident

·        Working at least 16 hours per week
