Anyone for Freddie Mercury's travel Scrabble?
Thousands of items from Freddie Mercury's personal collection are set to be up for auction next month.
Before that though, they're all on display at a huge exhibit in London, should you like to see them before they're sold off at extortionate prices!
More than 1,400 of Freddie Mercury's personal items, including his handwritten drafts of “Bohemian Rhapsody” and the baby grand piano he used to compose Queen's greatest hits, are going on display in London ahead of their sale. pic.twitter.com/2yM0g8Hu6x

The collection features his flamboyant costumes, a moustache comb, cat ceramics, and the piano he wrote 'We Are The Champions' on.
All of these items had been left to Freddie Mercury's close friend Mary Austin when he passed, and now she is deciding to share them with the public.
Part of the money raised will go to two Aids charities.
If you're in London over the next few weeks you can check out the exhibition at Sotheby's, with 15 galleries devoted to showcasing different aspects of Freddie Mercury's life.
The exhibition runs until the 5th of September 2023, which would have been Freddie's 77th birthday.
