Coca-Cola's Iconic Christmas Truck Tour Starts In The North...

Christmas must certainly be on its way when you spot the Coca-Cola Christmas Truck and see the advert on the TV with the famous jingle of 'Holidays are coming'.

Because of the pandemic the iconic Coca-Cola Christmas Truck Tour was cancelled but Christmas is set to be extra magical this year as the tour is now back in 2021. The iconic truck is planning to visit lots of cities around the UK.

Bringing Christmas cheer to the nation, the eagerly anticipated tour is set to put a spotlight on local community and togetherness. It is starting its tour in the North and here are the dates so far if you want to go and see it.

26 November - 11am-8pm - The Metro Shopping Centre, Newcastle
27 & 28 November - 11am-8pm - White Rose Shopping Centre, Leeds
1 December - Xscape Castleford
2 December - Fox Valley Shopping Park, Sheffield

The Coca-Cola Truck Tour has always been a moment to remind us of the importance of togetherness and community,

In a magical winter wonderland setting, visitors will be able to get their festive fill of Coca-Cola Zero Sugar, as well as capturing perfect seasonal selfies in front of the iconic red truck.

The sight of the Coca-Cola Truck is often said to mark the official start of Christmas and has done so ever since it first appeared in Coca-Cola’s famous ‘Holidays Are Coming’ advert 26 years ago. This year, the Tour is part of Coca-Cola’s Real Magic campaign, carrying at its heart a simple message of festive joy and inclusion, reminding us that real magic happens in the moments of warmth and connection that we share with others.

Louise Maugest, Marketing Director at Coca-Cola Great Britain, said:
"Coca-Cola has always been synonymous with Christmas, particularly the iconic Truck Tour. With the magic of Christmas needed now more than ever, we thought it was only right that we bring it back this year, safely and securely. The Coca-Cola Truck Tour has always been a moment to remind us of the importance of togetherness and community, something particularly prevalent during the festive season.”
