How much can I borrow?




You can get a Take it away interest-free loan of between £100 and £5,000 to help spread the cost of buying an instrument.

So whether you're a parent who needs to buy an entry-level instrument 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.

It's also possible to buy more than one musical instrument at the same time.

If the cost of the instrument/s you want to buy exceed the £5,000 loan limit, you can always use Take it away as a part-payment towards the instrument/s. 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.
