Royal Mail musical stamps

Royal Mail has launched a new set of stamps celebrating seven decades of UK stage musicals.

We Will Rock You, based on the songs of Queen, features as one of four versions of the first class stamp.

It appears alongside Monty Python's Spamalot and West End classics Blood Brothers and Oliver!

Me and My Girl, The Rocky Horror Show, Billy Elliot and Return to the Forbidden Planet all grace versions of the 97p stamp.

Other commemorative stamps due to be released this year include sets marking the anniversaries of the WWF and Royal Shakespeare Company, and a Magical Realms series.
