It’s in the Blood: Red or Blue will celebrate Manchester as a football city and will focus on Manchester City and Manchester United, as well as some general football-themed cartoon designs.

The artwork will be transformed into a range of exclusive products available for the first time at the event, and afterwards on the Forever Manchester Shop.

To launch this unique collection, an exhibition and sale will take place on Thursday (September 12) at The Albert Square Chophouse, where Tony’s cartoons will be on display from 6.30pm until 10pm.

There will be a welcome drink on arrival and a chance to view Tony’s 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.

Tony Husband said:

“I’m thrilled to be working with Forever Manchester to help raise funds for their many wonderful projects. I’m proud to be from Manchester and proud of our two football teams – perhaps one of them slightly more than the other!”

The proceeds from each of Tony’s cartoon designs will go directly to Forever Manchester, to help raise money to fund and support community activity in Greater Manchester.
