The Grove Media (formerly TCS Media) is an entrepreneurial, independent media planning and buying agency with offices in London and the North.

We are designed to work with ambitious, less-corporate style businesses helping them grow with strategies firmly anchored in 'Real World planning and buying'.

99% of advertisers spend £3M or less in the UK and The Grove Media provides an antidote for those agile businesses, we feel, the media agency world has deprioritised.

Businesses who need their creative and budget to work as hard as possible. Real World planning and buying isn’t easy, it’s about rolling your sleeves up, being passionate, being collaborative and most of all, about understanding the real challenges and opportunities facing clients, and how media can make a real difference to their business.

We’re big in the entertainment space, working with a vast array of promoters, attractions and venues to sell tickets (an est.20M in the last year), and with renowned brands in the homewares/lifestyle, healthcare and retail sectors on a variety of long-term brand response projects.
