Coca-Cola Christmas Truck in Nottingham: Travel delays expected at thousands head to two day event

Holidays are coming and so are expected travel delays as thousands of festive revellers are predicted to make the trek to see the Coca-Cola Christmas Truck as it rolls into Nottingham for two days. A roadworks bulletin from Nottinghamshire County Council has said delays are expected at the junction with A612 Colwick Loop Road on Thursday, December 6 and Friday, December 7 between noon and 8pm due to a “retail event” at Victoria Retail Park. The festive lorry will be parked up at the shopping complex between the same hours on the same dates.

Last year thousands of dedicated fizzy pop fans queued for up to 90 minutes at two Notts car parks for the chance to grab a seasonal selfie with the big red lorry, which made its TV debut 23 years ago (feel old now?). Organisers are anticipating that 6,000-7,000 people will visit the truck each day on the 2018 tour.

The truck (one of three touring the UK) will be parked up in the car park alongside a red North Pole-style sign saying ‘Nottingham’. There will also be a small sleigh and fake snow being pumped out from a snow machine.

On arrival you will need to join the queue and once at the front you’ll receive a free 150ml can of Coca-Cola zero sugar, Diet Coke or Coca-Cola original. Last year, Nottinghamshire Live reported that some families were waiting up to an hour and a half in the queue.
