To create thriving communities
Calthorpe Estates is keen to encourage thriving communities and support the many outstanding world-class leisure, cultural and sports facilities in Edgbaston.
Encouraging young people
One of the prestigious sporting events is the international AEGON Classic that takes places at the Edgbaston Priory Club. In recent years Calthorpe Estates has sponsored the Kids’ Day that attracts hundreds of local children who enjoy a free day of tennis, games and a chance to watch the tennis stars in action.
The team at Calthorpe Estates regularly gets involved with local schools based on the Estate and around the periphery, supporting community projects and class room initiatives.
Behind the scenes, Calthorpe Estates actively supports local facilities so they can be maintained and improved for generations to come. For example, long term lease agreements for the Edgbaston Golf Club and Edgbaston Priory Club have helped secure their future. Land around Pebble Mill is dedicated for sports with King Edward’s School now creating first class hockey facilities, which will also be used by the wider community.
Calthorpe Estates believes cultural activities help give the Estate its character and it actively supports the Birmingham Hippodrome theatre.
The Hippodrome is running its first Arts Champion Project in the area. Edgbaston Arts Table offers a variety of arts and crafts activities for the family, inspired by food. There are also strong connections with the Elmhurst School for Dance, who are located on the Estate and act as a feeder school for the Birmingham Royal Ballet and Birmingham Hippodrome.
The team is very active with a number of city partners, including Marketing Birmingham, Birmingham City Council and the Confederation of British Industry.
By working in partnership, Calthorpe Estates strives to make a difference to the overall regeneration and prosperity of the city and support inward investment opportunities.
Through the Calthorpe Business Alliance, businesses on the Estate have a chance to meet regularly.
Calthorpe Estates coordinates a programme of events that are held at venues on the Estate and enable the local business community to catch up on developments in the area. For example, recent events have been at the Edgbaston Priory Club, Edgbaston Golf Club, The High Field and at The Edgbaston and El Borracho de Oro.
