Christmas is right around the corner and the Coca-Cola tour is kicking off very soon!

We all know Christmas is truly here when the Coca-Cola truck starts making the rounds, and we're sure families across the country can't wait to visit the truck when it comes to the nearest city.

The company has just announced its official dates for the tour, and there will be a total of 19 locations where the trucks will visit, on 18 different days.

It's bad news for Northern Ireland as the truck won't be visiting, and Wales and Scotland only have one stop each - Cardiff and Scotland.

The tour is starting on the 15th of November

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.”

Jon Sparkes, Chief Executive at Crisis, added: “Everyone in our society  should have a safe and secure home

"But right now, many people are denied this basic human need. None of us should be facing the prospect of a Christmas without a home.

“We know that ending homelessness is absolutely possible.

"We’re delighted to be working with Coca-Cola throughout its iconic Christmas Truck Tour and receiving a donation that will help us to continue to be there for the people that need us, both at Christmas and all year round.”
