Coca-Cola teases huge Christmas truck tour for 2021

Coca-Cola has confirmed that the Christmas truck tour will be returning to the UK this year after a series of cryptic messages left on their social media platforms. Last year’s annual event was cancelled due to coronavirus restrictions, but the touring event is due to make a comeback this year. Although official confirmation is yet to be made by Coca-Cola bosses, a series of cryptic messages have been posted online to build hype up for the festive event.

The truck normally visits more than 40 locations around the UK, although, with a later than usual start date expected for this year, it is unknown whether some cities will miss out.

If you look at previous schedules for the last three touring years, the truck had already begun its journey across the UK by this time. In 2019, the tour began on November 15, the third Friday of the month, which is only two days away this year. In 2018, festivities began even earlier on Friday, November 9, and on Saturday, November 11 in 2017.
