First Coca-Cola Christmas truck dates as list of UK and Ireland town visits is revealed
| Last updated
IT’S CHRISTMASSSSS. Okay, it’s definitely not. I mean, there’s still over a whole month to go until the big day.
But that doesn’t mean the festivities aren’t kicking off already. While your neighbours already start putting their lights up, the iconic ads have begun on telly.
The iconic ‘Holidays Are Coming’ Coca-Cola ad has become an annual icon as its pretty much as famous as Santa’s own choice of transportation.
Each year it tours the UK and Ireland to hand out cans of the legendary drink and spread that festive joy.
‘Tis the season for Coke after all – the coca-cola kind of course.
The ‘Coca-Cola Real Magic Experience’ tends to keep people in anticipation for when the truck will arrive in their area.
The cheeky coke heads don’t usually reveal the locations in one go, instead they announce where they’ll be heading next once they’ve arrived in one area.
Two dates have so far been confirmed by Coca-Cola – RDS Simmonscourt in Dublin from 30 November to 3 December and then Belfast’s Titanic Slipway from 8-10 December.
So, once it kicks off over in Ireland, we should start to get the rest of the UK dates for the tour.
The full list of locations hasn’t been confirmed yet by Coca-Cola but last year the truck visited the following areas: Baldock, Beckton, Bradford, Bristol, Cardiff, Coventry, East Leake, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Kent, Leeds, London, Manchester, Sheffield, Watford and Wolverhampton
While it tours the UK, the company tend to support charities throughout. In recent years, it has partnered with hunger and food waste charity FareShare.
€2 per ticket is to be donated to the Irish Youth Foundation in Dublin and Youth Action Northern Ireland in Belfast.
If you go along to the ‘Real Magic Christmas Experience' in Belfast, there’ll be local food vendors, ‘fun festive experiences’ and music.
Guests can also queue for an iconic Coca-Cola Truck Photo, which could be an easy way of bagging a Christmas present this year.
