Instruments to use and hire
If you're a keen musician, but don't have the instrument you need, you can use or hire one from us and get playing.
Our Music Centre offers a range of instruments. Some can be used within the centre itself, and some are available for students and staff to hire and take away.
All the instruments marked with a * can be hired, on a first-come-first-served basis, for £20 per month.
Here's what's on offer:
Guitar (acoustic and electric) *
Heintzman 7ft grand piano (Ensemble Room)
