Looking for space to work on your songwriting?

In 2017 we announced a new scheme aimed at PRS members who may be struggling financially and in need of space to create or find respite, kindly funded by the Francis W Reckitt Arts Trust. We’re thrilled to announce we’ve received a new round of funding to pass on to PRS members, with applications now re-opened for 2019/2020.

We gratefully acknowledge the financial support received from the Francis W Reckitt Arts Trust as a resource to offer opportunities to eligible PRS members, (those who would not otherwise be able to afford to do so), to enjoy time away from home in order to rest, recuperate, research, work on their music and songs (alone or in collaboration), rehearse, or simply have a short break.

Should this be suitable for you, there are a number of options that could be applicable. Whether it’s a local retreat for yourself to write perhaps, a holiday space with your band or others to try new songs, or even a trip to somewhere more peaceful than your own home in order to work on your writing – whatever it may be, do get in touch to learn more. In the last round we were pleased to help PRS members with accommodation in the Lake District, in Wales, in Paris, Brighton and many more.

“The break gave me invaluable time and space and renewed energy, and renewed faith in my own work.”


“It has given me artistic satisfaction, improved my wellbeing and also led to some major business and career opportunities. I would just like to say how grateful I am for being part of the scheme, long may it continue.”


“I am so grateful that I was awarded the money because it allowed me to pursue an opportunity that I otherwise wouldn’t have been able to.”


Please note that our grant will only be used to cover board and lodging, it cannot go towards travel, studio hire or equipment purchase. You’ll be asked to fill out an application form and provide details of your potential trip. (Click here to download the Retreats Application Form)

It’s worth noting that the PRS Members’ Fund offers a wide range of support to members, ex-members and their families. If you or someone you know is struggling in any way then do get in touch, we may be able to help. Every application is treated with the strictest of confidence.

We hear you, we’re here for you.
