About The Strings Club
A multi-award-winning music education and childcare franchise, The Strings Club is on a mission to inspire as many children as possible through its range of programmes, including holiday camps, term-time courses, parties and a school music support service.
By successfully establishing itself in six territories since 2012, the franchise has seen the benefits that music-making can have on children – from wellbeing and confidence to communication skills and musicianship. The franchise believes that through its tried and tested model it is able to offer only the best in support and guidance in order for others to run their own successful franchise in an exclusive territory.
Having worked as a music teacher for a number of years, founder Amy Cunningham noticed a lack of music-based holiday camps during school breaks. From its initial Holiday Camp of six children, The Strings Club has grown exponentially to over 50,000 in 2019, demonstrating the sheer demand for childcare services of the highest quality that inspire children through music.
Due to its success, and recognising a flexible and rewarding business opportunity for individuals looking for that work-life balance, Amy decided to franchise the brand in 2018.
How does The Strings Club franchise model work?
The Strings Club offers a range of packages to suit various levels of investment. The brand is passionate about offering opportunities for growth and career development too. Hence, as the business grows, so does its franchisees.
The Bronze package offers a part-time business opportunity that enables individuals to focus on operating Holiday Camps that run 10 weeks of the year. This is a low-cost investment for high financial return. Through its tried and tested model, franchisees can earn up to £72,000 per year on Holiday Camps alone.
A Silver package with The Strings Club enables franchisees to maximise potential growth in their territory via all four income streams.
A Gold package allows individuals to operate independently in their own territories, running all four programmes as a full-time role, anticipating figures of over £105,000 in the first 24 months.

How in demand are the services provided by The Strings Club?
Playing an instrument is an amazing skill to have - for either an adult or a child. The benefits of music-making are endless too – from wellbeing and confidence to communication skills and musicianship.
Due to the unfortunate cuts to music in schools, The Strings Club aims to offer further opportunities for children to learn an instrument - either at their Holiday Camps or Term Time Classes or via their School Music Support Service. One of the unique selling points is that every child who attends a Holiday Camp is offered free hire of an instrument - enabling even more children to enjoy music education.
