Nothing says Christmas like the red Coca-Cola truck, and many are waiting to hear when the iconic red lorry will return to spread festive cheer in dozens of locations across the UK. The company said this year’s tour was set to be “bigger and better” than ever with new attractions to enjoy for 2022.
It’s all for a good cause, too - this year’s tour will not only bring families and friends together but shine the spotlight on the local community by supporting FareShare, a UK charity that fights hunger and food waste. For every person that attends the Coca‑Cola Truck Tour, Coca‑Cola Great Britain will fund the equivalent of one meal for a person in need.
For those unable to visit the Coca‑Cola Christmas Truck Your in person, from November 21 a promotion with Coca‑Cola Zero Sugar and Coca‑Cola Original Taste will invite fans to scan on-pack QR codes for the chance to win 1,000s of festive gifts, including pre-loaded £200 ‘Festive Feast’ gift cards. The on-pack promotion supports Coca‑Cola’s Christmas campaign, ‘Christmas Always Finds A Way’, with the aim to offer winners a special addition to their Christmas this year.
Here’s everything we know so far about the Coca-Cola Christmas Truck Tour 2022.
What is the Coca-Cola Christmas truck tour?
The tour started in 2010 and travels south from Scotland stopping at cities such as Newcastle, Liverpool, Leeds and Bristol before reaching its final destination, London, four weeks later. The tour returned in 2021 after a two-year hiatus due to the coronavirus pandemic.
What’s this year’s attraction with the Coca-Cola Christmas lorry tour?
As well as capturing the perfect seasonal selfies in front of the iconic red truck, this year’s tour is set to be “bigger and better” than ever before, with a magical winter market setting featuring fun activities for all to get involved with. This year’s Christmas experience also offers fun opportunities - from ‘elfie selfie’ shots, to QR codes that access a host of interactive games, plus food huts that will serve up seasonal treats.
Visitors will also have the opportunity to purchase Coca‑Cola Zero Sugar and Coca‑Cola Original Taste and have them personalised with their name or short phrase.
Will the Coca-Cola Christmas truck be coming to Bristol in 2022?
This is all but confirmed. Coca-Cola has kept the details under wraps but in recent days it teased people on social media asking about the 2022 UK tour.
One man contacted Coca-Cola directly over Twitter, referring to the Coca-Cola truck tour: “Good morning @CocaCola_GB I’m not sure whether I’ve missed it, and I’m waiting for the season to begin… but, are the holidays coming? I’m starting to get twitchy.”
