Take it Away

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

Take it away is an Arts Council England initiative that aims to make musical instruments more accessible by providing interest-free loans of £100 to £5,000. The scheme is open to parents buying an instrument for a child under the age of 18, and anyone over 18 who can apply in their own right.  

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 - £2,000) 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 over 18 years old 

Be a permanent UK resident 

Have a regular income that exceeds £5,000 per year 

Hold a bank or building society account capable of handling direct debit payments 

Loans are subject to status. Terms and conditions apply.
