Preston Simpson and Sterndale Young Musicians Trust

The Preston Simpson and Sterndale Young Musicians Trust, supported through Hartlepool Borough Council, makes awards to young people to enable them to study music at any educational establishment providing courses in musical education.

It is designed to assist those students who have already achieved a good standard in their musical studies and who may wish to make use of their musical ability in their future careers. The trustees make annual awards to young people and also host an awards event which takes place in the Borough Hall.  Some of the award winners are invited to perform at this event.

If you would like to apply for an award please read the guidance information carefully before completing the application form.  If you require any further information please contact Judith Oliver on 01429 523914 or email
