Take It Away Scheme
We offer 0% Interest Free Credit with the Arts Council’s Take It Away Scheme.
Get an Interest Free Take It Away Loan between £100 and £5000 and spread the cost of buying a piano into 9 or 18 monthly payments!*
Interest Free Finance Available.
So whether you’re a parent who needs to buy an entry-level piano for a complete beginner, or you’re an 18-25 year old more experienced musician wanting to upgrade to a better model, Take it Away could make it easier for you.
If the cost of the piano you want to buy exceeds the £5,000 loan limit, you can always use Take it Away as a part-payment towards the piano. You would then need to pay the remaining value by an alternative method. It is not possible to split the cost of an instrument or instruments over more than one loan application.
*Don’t forget, you need to a UK resident, working at least 16 hours per week, and be either 18-25 years old, or over 18 and buying an instrument for a child under 18 in order to be eligible to apply for a Take it away loan.
Am I Eligible For Interest Free Credit?
To be eligible to apply for a Take it away loan, you must be:
EITHER an individual over 18 buying an instrument for a child under the age of 18
OR an individual aged 18-25 years using the scheme to buy an instrument for themselves (or someone else, e.g. as a gift)
All applicants must also:
Be a permanent UK resident
Be working at least 16 hours per week
Hold a bank or building society account capable of handling direct debit payments
Applicants using the scheme to buy an instrument for an under 18 will be required to complete a customer declaration confirming that the recipient of the instrument is a child.
Unfortunately we are not able to support applicants aged 26 or over who are not using the scheme to purchase a musical instrument for an under 18.
Loans are subject to status. Terms and conditions apply.
