Are you planning a marquee wedding reception but want to find something a little out of the ordinary that's also environmentally friendly? How about a Papa Kåta tent?
Papakata specialise in hiring out Kåta tents - the tipi-style tents that were pioneered by the Sami people of Lapland.
Founders and Directors are husband and wife team Amanda and Richard Monaghan. They set up PapaKåta after trying to find a tipi for their own wedding.
“We looked at loads of different companies, but all their marquees looked, well, a bit samey. And we wanted something special. When we finally came across athe Kåta tents, we just fell for them.
We love Kåta tents, and we're passionate about providing something completely different for your special occasion, which is nothing less than it deserves.
Our tents are, where possible, made entirely out of natural materials because we think that's just the way things should be done. We also endeavor to be carbon neutral. That means that for every event we participate in we support the planting of enough trees to compensate for the carbon released during the planning, holding, and packing up of that event.
We design everything to suit your needs, so no matter what you have in mind, we're here to make it happen.
Our tents are really flexible and can cater for just about any size and type of event: they can be used alone or joined together, with their sides raised or lowered to create just the right space. And combined with our range of interiors and furnishings, they'll help you create the perfect atmosphere.
We'll deliver the tents to your location, put them up and furnish them. We're then on call for the duration of your hire, just in case you need us, until we come back to take it all away again.
What are you planning?
The set-up most appropriate for your particular event depends upon many things. Are you going for a purely sit-down affair, or do you want a dance floor?
Weddings are worth celebrating in style and deserve a setting fit for the occasion. Each Kåta tent can hold up to 72 people for a sit down dinner, two joined together up to 150, three joined - 250, and so on. They're a viable and exciting alternative to any wedding marquee, and comparable in cost too.
Parties, Events & Festivals
A Kåta provides an eye-catching presence at any event and helps you stand out from the crowd. They're also a really unique space for events that need a burst of inspiration - corporate parties and balls; team-building days; product launches, whatever you have in mind.
Winter wedding or Christmas party? No problem.
Our tents are inspired by those used by the Sami people of Lapland, so they've been field tested in the harshest of climates, and are designed to be warm and cosy in cold weather. We also supply finishing touches that will make sure you stay totally snug - an open wood-burning fire, real reindeer hides to sit on, and of course heaters to keep your tootsies toasty.
Seasons Greetings from Papakata
We know it's a little early to get festive but we've got something we're very excited about and we want to share it with you...
We're bored of 'traditional' Christmas parties with all the festive cheer of left-over turkey and have taken a vow that this year will be different. This year will be worth talking about at work in the cold light of January. This year we'll have a proper party - and you're all invited!
Join us for a boogy and a sumptuous three-course meal under canvas in our giant Papakata tipis at Escrick Park Estate, just 15 minutes from York...
To find out more, call 01904 702100 or visit www.papakata.co.uk/papachristmas. We'd love to see you there!
