Gnomeo and Juliet visit the South West

A celebrity spotting with a difference happened in the Shire of Dardanup over the Easter Weekend, with the stars of Gnomeo and Juliet making an appearance in the South West.

The beloved garden gnomes are back in cinemas with their sequel, Sherlock Gnomes, but took some time out from their busy promotional tour to visit friends at Gnomesville.

Gnomeo, Juliet and their friend Nanette the frog road-tripped from Perth and were greeted by more than 10,000 gnomes.

Now showing, Sherlock Gnomes sees Gnomeo and Juliet back for a whole new adventure, this time in London. 

A series of gnome-nappings ahead of the spring garden show season triggers the summoning of the sleuth Sherlock Gnomes.

The action-packed sequel features the voices of returning cast, James McAvoy, Emily Blunt, Michael Caine, Maggie Smith, Stephen Merchant and Ozzy Osbourne, plus Johnny Depp as Sherlock Gnomes, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Watson and Mary J. Blige as Irene.
