Take it Away is an Arts Council England initiative designed to help more people get involved in learning and playing music by providing an interest free payment plan for the purchase of musical instruments.

Following a successful six month pilot in the South East region, Arts Council England is now planning a national roll out of the scheme during 2007.

What will be available?

The scheme will allow customers to apply for a loan of up to £2,000 for the purchase of any kind of musical instrument, and pay it back in nine monthly instalments, completely interest free. You can also include equipment and services such as music stands, amplifiers, sheet music and tuition as part of your loan to help you manage these costs, and help your musical development.

Who can apply?
The scheme will be open to everyone but is primarily designed to help people who might otherwise be unable to afford to purchase an instrument appropriate to their needs.
You must be over 18 to apply for a loan. However, if you are under 18, a parent or guardian may be able to apply for a loan on your behalf. Donít forget that whoever applies for the loan will remain legally responsible for the repayments and any terms and conditions that may apply.

Loans are offered subject to status and are available to individuals only.

* Typical 0% APR

Offer subject to age and status. Terms and conditions apply. Take it Away is operated by ArtCo Trading Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of Arts Council England. Registered address: Arts Council England, North East, Central Square, Forth Street, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE1 3PJ
