Our greatest sighting yet! Following-up on the Box Office success of 2011’s Gnomeo & Juliet is SHERLOCK GNOMES. Following the disappearance of several garden gnomes, this Sequel sees Gnomeo and Juliet hiring the top detective Sherlock Gnomes to investigate.
We spotted Gnomeo and Juliet out and about doing the rounds and not surprisingly, they made time to do a little good visiting some of their biggest fans at SickKids Hospital whom definitely could’ve used a pick-me-up! We caught them warming-up for their surprise visit. We did a little choreography, hugs were exchanged and smiles were brought to the faces of those deserving.
