Take it away is an Arts Council England initiative that aims to make musical instruments more accessible to children and young people by providing interest - free loans of up to £5,000. The scheme is open to parents buying an instrument for a child under the age of 18, but also 18-25 years olds who can apply in their own right.
You can use Take it away to borrow between £100-5,000 towards the costs of your chosen instrument.
You will need to pay a minimum of 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 9 months (for goods of £100-£2000) or 18 months (for goods of £800-£5,000) 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 ages 18-25 years and applying in their own right
- A permanent UK resident
- Working at least 16 hours a week
