Coca-Cola Christmas truck dates and locations announced

For this year’s holiday season, the famous Coca-Cola truck will set off on its annual tour across the UK and Ireland.

The iconic car, which gained notoriety in the beverage company’s 1995 Christmas commercial, will make many appearances in November and December to spark joy and get people into the festive spirit.

The first dates have been revealed. Given that the truck visited 42 locations in 2017, these are probably the first of many. There has always been a sense of surprise because the future location of the truck is only revealed when it has reached its destination.

“We can confirm there will be a Truck Tour this year, however, our team are still finalising the details so keep an eye on our socials for updates.” Coca-Cola said.

Here are the Coca-Cola Christmas truck locations and dates.

How much is the Coca-Cola Christmas truck?

Eventbrite has announced the details and listed the price for €3.14 (around £2.75).

Tickets on Eventbrite are available for the previously announced dates in Ireland and Northern Ireland.

It’s the first time a ticket has been needed to visit the Coca-Cola truck, and it’s unclear if this will apply at all locations.

Normally, Coca-Cola also donates to a few charities along the way. It has collaborated with the hunger and food waste organisation FareShare for the previous few years, providing funding for the distribution of 200,000 meals to those in need.

The truck didn’t start going around the UK until 2010, but it started travelling around the US in 2001.

When does the Coca-Cola Christmas truck tour begin?

The official Coca-Cola website states that the truck trip will start on November 30.
