Love it or loathe it, football is, in many minds at least, the nation’s sport. Multi-award-winning cartoonist Tony Husband has designed a new collection of artwork and products exclusively for Greater Manchester charity Forever Manchester.

It’s in the Blood: Red or Blue celebrates Manchester as a football city and focuses on Manchester City and Manchester United. The artwork will be transformed into greetings cards, coasters, mugs, t-shirts and postcards, which will all be available after the launch from the Forever Manchester Shop. The proceeds from each of Husband’s cartoon designs will go directly to the charity to fund and support community activity across Greater Manchester.

To launch this collection, an exhibition will take place on September 12, 2019 at The Albert Square Chophouse, where Husband’s cartoons will be on display from 6.30pm until 10pm. There will be a welcome drink on arrival and a chance to view the exhibition along with the football cartoon merchandise, all of which will be available for sale. Admission will be free for the exhibition/launch night, with everyone welcome. To register for the exhibition/launch, please visit:
