This weekend is the PapaKåta Spring Open Weekend at Escrick Park Estate. We’re opening our gates to the public and giving you the chance to explore the grounds during this fun-filled event. 

The event runs from 10am until 4pm on Saturday the 19th and Sunday the 20th of March, and over the weekend you’ll find the grounds of Escrick Park transformed into a magical party space full of beautifully decorated tents and teepees from our friends at PapaKåta.
helping to create an unforgettable wedding atmosphere for the best day of your life. 

Who are PapaKåta?

PapaKåta are friends of Escrick Park, and help us to cater for events and weddings on the grounds of our beautiful Estate. They make stunning teepees and Sperry tents ideal for rural weddings and outdoor events. Their lovely designs can be arranged, decorated and lit to suit your unique tastes, helping to create an unforgettable wedding atmosphere for the best day of your life. 

What is the Spring Open Weekend?

The Spring Open Weekend is your chance to see PapaKåta Sperry tents and teepees up close and personal. Their giant tents and teepees will be set up all around Escrick Park, filling our grounds with an enchanting festival atmosphere. You’ll find roaring open fires and welcoming party tables, caterers serving some of Yorkshire’s finest food and drink and even live DJs. It’s the perfect opportunity to get inspiration for your rural wedding, with wedding photographers and florists on hand to help you imagine your perfect day. To cap it off, our Hebridean sheep will be quietly grazing in the background, adding a touch of rural charm to the day.
