Coca-Cola Christmas truck tour schedule update as new stops announced

Excitement is building for the upcoming Coca-Cola Christmas truck tour with two more dates announced. The iconic red vehicle is the star of the fizzy drink company’s Christmas advert every year and is embarking on a tour of the UK from today (November 24). LancsLive reported earlier this week how fans in Scotland will be the first to get their hands on free samples of Coca Cola Zero as well as capturing those all important seasonal selfies with loved ones.

The truck is attending Silverburn Shopping Centre in Glasgow today and tomorrow from 11am to 8pm. Further dates have now been added to the schedule for the end of the week – and it’s edging closer towards Lancashire. :Snow to hit Lancashire this week as temperatures drop to -3C

The lorry, part of drink giant’s Real Magic Campaign, will visit The Metro Shopping Centre in Newcastle on Friday (November 26) before making a two-day stop at the White Rose Shopping Centre in Leeds on Saturday and Sunday. Coca-Cola has made changes to the tour this year amid ongoing coronavirus concerns. Instead of releasing the schedule in full as in previous years, they are holding back dates of the tour closer to the time until they are certain the event will be able to go ahead.

A spokesperson said: “The team behind the amazing truck tour understand that everyone is really keen the truck comes to their town because people love it. “But it has been an unprecedented year and because of this, things will be a little bit different. There won’t be a long list of dates announced at once.

“Locations are still being finalised and will be announced region by region when they are confirmed and people will still have enough time to plan their visit.” The vehicle first appeared in the iconic Coca Cola “Holidays are Coming” advert 26 years ago.
