Meet the neighbours

Hello, we’re Elly and Harry. We’re a couple with a love for handmade pieces and supporting independent makers, and together we run a small shop in Manchester’s Northern Quarter called Form Lifestyle. Everything that we sell has been carefully chosen by us, with a focus on design, function and simplicity.

“Here at Rudys it’s all about the pizza. Just like in Naples, our dough is made on site every day, takes 24 hours to double ferment, and just 60 seconds to cook. Our pizzas are soft, light and floppy…so fold for strength or tuck in with a knife and fork.”

History

New Cross – the area around the junction of Tib Street, Swan Street and Oldham Street – was a thriving part of Manchester in the 18th and 19th centuries.

With several printers based around New Cross, the production of Penny Broadsides – a printed rundown of the daily news presented in rhyme or verse and costing, as the name suggests, only a penny – was a key part of the area’s success and, as you may have guessed, a big influence in choosing our name.

Plastered onto walls and handed out in the streets, Penny Broadsides were inclusive, informal and brought news and information to the masses.
