LEGENDARY rocker Steve Harley headlined Secret World's first ever music festival.

Steve and his band Cockney Rebel, were joined by inspirational punk rocker Toyah Willcox and a host of Somerset bands for the inaugural Music in the Meadow one day festival.

Secret World Wildlife Rescue in East Huntspill, near Highbridge was packed on Saturday, September 10 for a day of fantastic live music and activities.

Visitors have been flocking to events at Secret World for many years, but it’s usually for a chance to get close to wildlife.

But this time it people were coming for a fantastic, family-friendly day and evening of live music.

After initially training as a journalist, Steve Harley began his singing career 'floor-spotting' (singing for free as a member of the audience) in London folk clubs.

He soon formed Cockney Rebel and signed their first album deal with EMI in 1972, topping the charts in 1975 with their hit single Make Me Smile (Come Up and See Me).

Meanwhile In a career spanning over 35 years Toyah Willcox has amassed 13 top 40 singles, recorded 24 albums and toured live across the world.

Supporting acts included Yeovil bands Storm and Daytona, Castle Cary’s A Cunning Plan, Twerzels (the West Country’s finest Wurzels Tribute band) and Luna-C from Wedmore.

All money raised from Music in the Meadow will go towards Secret World's work to rescue, rehabilitate and release injured and orphaned wildlife.

Secret World's next big event is the Secret World of Hedgehogs weekend from October 22-24 which will have the added attraction of a sponsored firewalk.
