There’s no surer sign that holidays are coming. Yes, the Coca-Cola Christmas truck is about to head out on its annual festive tour.

The iconic big red festive truck will be returning to Manchester on three dates this December as part of a full UK tour.

It will stop off with its festive crew where guests can get a free 150ml can of its Coca-Cola Zero sugar – and fans can get plenty of festive selfies of course.

The huge red truck has become synonymous with Christmas thanks to the festive Coke TV adverts with the jingle “holidays are coming”.

And this year, Coca-Cola has partnered with Crisis, the national homelessness charity, to donate 10p for each can recycled by visitors at the truck tour, with funds going to help people out of homelessness.

The Christmas Truck Tour 2019 will start this weekend with stops in Edinburgh and Cardiff, before it heads off across the UK including London, Plymouth, Dudley and Bristol before heading north.

It will arrive in Manchester on Monday 2nd December at the Asda Eastlands store.

It will then return to Manchester on Friday 6th December and Saturday 7th December for two sessions at the intu Trafford Centre.

For those in Cheshire, the Coca-Cola truck will be arriving at the Cheshire Oaks shopping outlet in Ellesmere Port the following weekend, Friday 13th December and Saturday 14th December.

At all stops, the truck will be open to the public from 12pm noon until 7pm.

Kris Robbens, marketing director at Coca-Cola Great Britain and Ireland, said: “Christmas is all about sharing special moments with friends and loved ones and we’re looking forward to spreading the festive cheer across Great Britain again this year with our iconic Coca- Cola Christmas Truck Tour. 

“Whilst Christmas is a moment of celebration, it’s also incredibly important to remember those that need support throughout the season.

“So, we’re really pleased to partner with Crisis and whilst guests at the tour enjoy a refreshing Coca-Cola zero sugar, when they recycle their can, they’ll be helping to support an amazing charity.”
