Romeo and Juliet are the youngest members of their clans, the Montagues and Capulets, who have been at war with one another for many years. Bloodshed, bitterness and betrayal litters the two clans' histories, both sides too proud and too consumed with anger to broker a lasting peace. In these tense times, Romeo and Juliet fall in love and attempt to continue their illicit liaisons, despite the heartache and grief it would cause their parents.

The best thing I have done in London to date, which is quite a feat to achieve.  I am a massive R+J fan and as soon as you walk through the doors of St. Mary's you know you are in for a special treat with candles and music greeting the entrance.  

I was directed to the bar downstairs and as I had arrived in plenty of time I had my pick of the sofas.  Drinks were reasonable enough at £6/22 wine and £4 beer and there was a selection of popcorn, ice-cream and pick a mix snacks on offer.

The church was beautifully decked out in neon crosses and candles as you walk down the aisle to your seats.  We were on a sofa with a perfect view of the screen and amazing Some Voices Choir.  (If you haven't seen these guys at a Christmas show check them out!).  The choir perfectly complimented the theme tunes in a unique way and added a worldly element to both the movie and church.  

A lot of people cringed at the last song the choir sang to finish which wasn't in the movie, Creep by Radiohead but I thought it fitted nicely being a fan myself.

Couldn't have loved the whole experience more.  Deserves more than 5*'s!!
