Coca-Cola Christmas Truck Tour 2021

Coca-Cola’s Christmas Truck Tour is back with new locations and dates being announced one at a time. For many the iconic red vehicle marks the start of the festive season and seeing it up close is an annual tradition. Following Monday’s announcement that the truck will be making its first stop in Glasgow on Wednesday, the fizzy drinks giant has confirmed its next port of call.

On November 26 people in Newcastle will be able to catch the ‘Holidays Are Coming’ lorry and grab a free bottle of Coca-Cola at the Metro Shopping Centre. Tour locations and dates are being revealed differently this year in preparation for any new coronavirus restrictions that could be imposed in the lead up to Christmas.

Fans have celebrated the truck’s imminent return on Twitter

After being forced to scrap the truck’s trip around Britain last year, Coca-Cola look to be avoiding leaving anyone disappointed by pulling the plug on a confirmed stop. The initial two visits however have been deemed safe to announce by the company’s chiefs, with Glasgow’s Silverburn Shopping Centre stop on November 24 kicking off the tour.

Before confirming the truck would be back for the first time in two years, Coca-Cola GB was teasing fans on Twitter with cryptic replies to their pleas for information.
