Watch artisans make Freddie Mercury's Blue Plaque

Freddie Mercury's childhood home in London will now have a blue plaque, the UK's acknowledgement of a significant historical person or place. This endearing film chronicles how it was made.


This is the 150th year that English Heritage has been installing plaques.

You can find the plaque at 22 Gladstone Avenue, Feltham, in the London Borough of Hounslow. And yes, that's a lovely piano rendition of "We Are the Champions" as the soundtrack.
