It's that time of year again… Coca-Cola's Christmas truck – which has appeared in the soft drink's festive advertising campaign for the last 23 years – is set to go on tour across the UK, and chances are it will be coming to a town near you! Now in its eighth year, the tour will start on Friday 9 November and visit 14 towns and cities across the UK, before making its final stop in London on 16 December.
As well as having the opportunity to get that all-important selfie in front of the truck, visitors will be able to enjoy a 150ml can of Coca-Cola zero sugar, Diet Coke or Coca-Cola at each stop. This year, the truck tour is getting an eco-friendly update in line with the company's World Without Waste goal – a global pledge to collect and recycle a bottle or can for each one sold by the year 2030 – so you can take along any bottles or cans for recycling.
Coca-Cola's Christmas truck tour starts on 9 November
Over the last eight years, the Coca-Cola Christmas truck has travelled over 737,000 miles – the equivalent of 29 times around the world – twinkling its 8,772 fairy lights and playing the iconic 'Holidays are Coming' jingle. See how you can visit the truck with your family this Christmas with the full-list of 2018 tour dates below…
