Coca-Cola Christmas truck tour announces more locations across UK

I’m not sure there’s anything else that puts you in the festive mood quite as much as cracking open an ice-cold can of Coca-Cola and knowing that Santa is truly coming to town when you spot Coca-Cola's red truck roaming the country to spread some festive fun.

And even more Brits will be able to tuck into a refreshing beverage after its infamous Christmas truck tour is setting off to even more locations across the UK in a bid to spread festive cheer and fizzy drinks.

Coca-Cola has revealed even more areas that it will visit, so onlookers can catch a glimpse of the famous truck.

Coca-Cola's Christmas Truck Tour was cancelled in 2020 as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic and while it returned last year, the number of places it visited was reduced.

This year, it's back in full force and kicked off the tour at Bluewater shopping centre in Kent two weeks ago, before heading to the likes of Scotland, London, Manchester, Bristol, West Yorkshire, Cardiff and Leeds over the past few days.

But in just two days time, the truck will be heading to both Market Square, Wolverhampton and Beefeater, Coventry.

After that, on 16 and 17 December, residents in Belfast may find themselves looking up at the impressive red truck.

Not only will you be able to get your hands on a refreshing drink of Coca-Cola Zero Sugar or Coca-Cola Original Taste when the truck visits a location near you, but there will also be interactive games to get involved with, ranging from free bottles of the fizzy drink, 'elfie selfies' to take and delicious food to munch on.

You'll also get the opportunity to add a short phrase or your name onto one of the original bottles.

  • December 8 - Market Square, Wolverhampton and Beefeater, Coventry
  • December 16 and 17 - Belfast

Full dates visited so far:

  • November 25 - Bluewater Shopping Centre, Kent
  • November 26 and 27 - Sainsbury's, Beckton
  • November 29 - Linwood, Renfrewshire
  • December 1 - Wembley Park, London
  • December 2 - Eastlands Asda, Manchester
  • December 3 - Cribbs Causeway, Bristol and Morrisons, Bradford
  • December 4 - St David's Centre, Cardiff and Asda Morley, Leeds

There's even a handy Facebook page - with over 15,000 members - dedicated to Coca-Cola's Christmas Truck tour so you can stay up to date with the latest announcements and track the bus too.

Over 100,000 people are expected to flock to visit the Coca-Cola Christmas truck and the company has since partnered with FareShare - a foodbank charity redistributing meals to vulnerable people - hoping to donate the same amount of meals to the organisation per visitor who comes to see the truck.
