60th Anniversary Diamond Music Awards

To mark the 60th Anniversary of Tonbridge Music Club we are delighted to launch the TMC Diamond Music Awards, supporting local young musicians aged 5-18 years to achieve their musical potential.

Promoting young musical talent is central to our charity’s mission, and this feels even more important after the past two years when so many opportunities for young people have been severely restricted.

The awards consist of 8 financial grants:

    • one grant of £600
    • one grant of £300
    • six grants of £100

Grants are to be put towards musical costs, such as the purchase of an instrument, instrumental or singing lessons, sheet music, ensemble membership fees, concert tickets etc…

Applications are invited from young people at any stage of their musical life, whether just starting out or becoming an established musician.

Applicants must be:

    • aged 18 or under on the 31st July 2022
    • attending a school or college in Tonbridge or neighbouring village.

We ask that all applications are supported by either an instrumental or singing teacher, or class teacher.

Awards winners will be selected by a panel of TMC Trustees and local professional musicians. Winners will be notified by 31st August 2022 and invited to attend a special presentation at the first concert of our 60th Anniversary season on Saturday 15th October at Tonbridge School.

To apply, please download and complete the application form below and return it to treasurer@tmc.org.uk. Alternatively, please post the completed form to TMC Treasurer, 28 Vauxhall Gardens, Tonbridge TN11 0LZ.
