Our History

Secret Garden Makes History

Secret Garden made history by winning the Eurovision Song Contest in 1995 with “Nocturne”, an entry that was more an instrumental piece than a song. In the 4o- year history of this prestigious pan-European television extravaganza, an instrumental piece had never previously won. A piece so stylistically removed from the “European pop format” commonly associated with the song contest, that the press stated: “Secret Garden has redefined the Eurovision Song Contest”.

Our book, “YOU RAISE ME UP – The Story of Secret Garden. The book tells about Secret Gardens history of Grand Prix victory in 1995 until today. The book also includes guest authored chapters by Barbra Streisand, Roger Hodgson (Supertramp) and a host of other industry personalities.

Nocturne has new platform!
2020 is the 25th anniversary of Secret Gardens Eurovision win with Nocturne in 1995.
The host of that Eurovision was the wonderful Irish TV presenter Mary Kennedy. Mary is competing in Irelands Dancing with the Stars and she choose Nocturne to perform her dance routine last night in Dublin.
With her dancing partner and choreographer John Nolan they performed a stunning waltz.
It was great fun and an honour to be invited with hubby as Mary and John’s guests to see this amazing and emotional performance.
A lovely start to the year for us and a welcome relief from the daily routine of dealing with breast cancer treatment.

Hopefully it won’t be so long now before I can start performing it again.!!
