BIRMINGHAM – Coca-Cola’s famous Christmas truck tour dates have been revealed meaning the holidays are well and truly coming.
In a sure sign the festive season is underway, the yuletide lorry will set off on November 17 and make 44 nationwide stops.
It will disembark from Bishops Square in London, snake its way across the UK and finish up at the capital’s Leicester Square right before the big day.
In addition, Coca-Cola will spread more festive happiness as one lucky consumer will win a personal visit to their home from the Christmas truck – and a Santa sack full of goodies worth £5,000.
Alongside the truck this year will be a ‘winter wonderland’ attraction.
And every visitor can enjoy a free bottle of Coca-Cola, Diet Coke or Coke Zero as they take in the magical sights.
For the first time ever, the Coca-Cola truck will also be stopping online as Twitter users will enjoy their own special visit from 4 November – 25 December.
All you have to do is tweet with the hashtag #HolidaysAreComing will see the Coca-Cola Christmas truck appear in their message.
The famous ‘Holidays Are Coming’ advert will also return to UK screens, 21 years since first being aired.
Visitors will be able to see the legendary lorry up close and have their picture taken next to it.
