Young musicians in Newtown could benefit from a grant scheme launched by Powys County Council to help develop professionally led musical opportunities.

Grants ranging from £250 to £5000 are being offered to organisations in a bid to develop professionally led musical opportunities for young people.
The Powys Youth Music Development Scheme is set up to provide funding to help nurture the musical talents of 9-25-year-olds in the county.
Applications can be made for funding to help with music workshops, rehearsals, concerts, summer schools and transport costs. It can also be used for production or performance costs, including venue hire, artists’ fees, and technical requirements as well as other costs.
Grants can also be used to help cover the costs of providing orchestral leaders, music practitioners or tutors and sound technicians.
Cllr Rachel Powell, Powys County Council’s Cabinet Officer for Young People and Culture, said: “We want to encourage young Powys people to take part in musical activities that are imaginative, challenging and inspiring and, through this fund, help encourage our young artists and allow them to develop their musical skills.”
“I also want to make the point that this fund isn’t limited to one particular genre of music. We want young people who wish to create high-quality music – whatever the musical style - to be supported by this funding.”
Details of the funding scheme and application forms can be obtained by email request to
