The Story
Behind the Square

As you might know, Berkeley Square is a beautiful tree lined square in London’s Mayfair. It is also the setting for the whimsical song “A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square”, depicting the magic that happens on a certain night when two unassuming people meet for the very first time. With a simple smile, and an unforeseen connection, something begins to grow and become larger than ever anticipated. Totally prolific and completely profound, in all its authenticity, it is just right.

With a slight slant on the spelling, and a joyful respect to the square and the lyrical song, grew Barclay Square Media — a visionary culture that consists of the pulse, the energy, the creative rhythm that happens when people from around the world come together to CREATE, CONNECT and COLLABORATE.

Barclay Square Media is about how surprising creativity truly is and how it happens in its most genuine form when you simply open yourself up and connect.

Life on the square is always buzzing with projects and possibilities, but we always find time to just breathe, to just play, and to just be.

At Barclay Square Media we take pride in staying connected, yet relish in the moments that remain unplugged. We believe that great shows and projects don’t just happen – they are built by teams of amazingly talented, dedicated people. People who innately create without judgment and take risks that send them soaring to the moon and back as if they didn’t even have a choice.

Barclay Square Media is funny, thoughtful, playful, and surprising! It is classical elegance with a graceful standard of quality and integrity in all it imagines, produces and creates.


FUNNY, THOUGHTFUL, PLAYFUL, and INSPIRING! It is through evergreen characters and great story telling that Barclay Square Media engages KIDS and the grown-ups in their lives, to play, discover, connect and grow together.






Teenage life has never been so totally transparent.
