The Grove Story

We are the Real World Media agency

We are independent, entrepreneurial and believe that one size definitely doesn’t fit all.

Formerly TCS Media, we are the home of the 99% of advertisers who spend £3m or less - the heartbeat of UK business that has been deprioritised by the agency world.

We understand that ambitious businesses with leaner budgets have very real needs and challenges. We have built our agency around these and have a 50-year track record of delivering outstanding results for our clients.

We do this through our unique Real World Media approach to planning & buying.

Real World Media means cutting through the smoke & mirrors in advertising, being straight and always doing what’s right for clients.

It’s about bringing businesses into the ‘real world’. Building brands and driving consumer engagement across digital-first platforms while upscaling across traditional channels.

Through Real World Media, we make smaller budgets work really hard. We’re not constrained by agency deals, and with smart thinking and clever tweaks, we turn the ordinary into the extraordinary.

We never forget that Real World Media is a people business. We listen, we understand, and we get on with it. There are no corporate layers with us, just expert practitioners, working hard as part of extended client teams, and always with a smile.

And we know only too well that Real World Media is about constant innovation and improvement. We are always looking for new approaches, always on the front foot for clients, and always striving for better results.
