Supporting our businesses
We believe in a partnership approach and with that in mind created the Calthorpe Business Community (CBC), as an independent association to promote the mutual interests of all our business customers across the Estate.
Since its inception it has gone from strength-to-strength and has helped to improve the dynamic business community in Edgbaston.
News, events and support
We regularly get together with our customers at a series of CBC events throughout the year, sharing with them updates, news from across the Estate and developments. Furthermore, we take a strong interest in our customers businesses, where possible promoting them through social media, our newsletter and by encouraging them to establish relationships with other customers across the Estate.

Christmas Calthorpe Business Community lunch, at Edgbaston Golf Club
At each event, over the years we hold a free prize draw, with many of our members winning lovely gifts. As Christmas is a time of giving, at this event we asked members to buy raffle tickets to enter the draw for our prize extravaganza, with over 10 prizes to be won!
With all proceeds going to Aquarius, Martineau Gardens, Open Door Youth Counselling and St George’s Church, we raised just short of £300 and Calthorpe Estates matched this figure and distributed the funds equally between our chosen charities.
10 lucky attendees won some terrific Edgbaston Experience prizes, ranging from 12-month family membership to Birmingham Botanical Gardens, tickets to see the star-studded Pantomime Cinderella, a full body hot stones massage & Lunch for 4 including drinks to mention but a few.
