ON what would have been the week of The Hug and Pint’s fifth birthday party, the popular West End venue has announced an exclusive run of special edition merchandise custom-designed by a selection of local artists.

The Hug Yr Pals collection is currently on sale and features an array of high-quality cotton t-shirts, tote bags and premium art prints designed by Alan Frame, Amanda Stanley, Amy Browne, Erin McGrath, Flore De Hoog, Julian Dicken (Moonshake Design), Lyndsay McCartney and Niall Smilie.

All profits will be split equally between the artists and the venue with the dual aim of helping to support these incredible artists in this unpredictable time and sharing their work while also working towards safeguarding the future of The Hug and Pint.

In addition, £1 from every item sold will be donated between Glasgow Women’s Aid and Maryhill Integration Network.
