Coca-Cola Christmas truck driving to big city this week as fans flock for snaps

Coca-Cola fans are in for a real festive treat this weekend as the drinks giant reveals its latest location for the Christmas Truck Tour 2021.

The bright red Christmas Truck is set to make its way from Wales and into England as it continues its famous drive around the UK.

Fans have been lucky to be able to flock to the particular locations as part of the tour so far, in a bid to take selfies and Christmas photos next to the dazzling hauler.

The brand was forced to apologise after the Wolverhampton truck stop was cancelled in the area yesterday, December 8.

Where is the next Coca-Cola Christmas Truck Tour location for 2021?

However, for December 9 and 10 – today and tomorrow – the truck is making its way to Cardiff to appear at St David's Centre for two days.

For the final destination of the week, the Coca-Cola Christmas Truck will head to Bristol and can be seen at Cribbs Causeway.

When is the Coca-Cola Christmas Truck's next stop and date?

The vehicle is usually open for fans between 11am and 8pm, giving families plenty of time to head down to the locations on the day.

The drinks company is doing things differently this year due to Covid implications.

Instead of announcing the full list of locations, they have decided to only announce the date and places the truck will be a few days beforehand.

This is to help minimise crowds on the day, with fans being advised to check the latest information regularly to ensure they don't miss out.

Where has the Coca-Cola Christmas Truck been?

The Real Magic Christmas Truck tour started at the top of the British Isles in Glasgow, Scotland. It arrived in the city in the final week of November before it made its way down to northern England.

It then stopped off at Gateshead, Leeds, and Castleford over the following week.

Next, it visited Sheffield and Manchester before it planned to arrive in Wolverhampton yesterday – but the latest event had to be cancelled.

The tradition first began after Coca-Cola's iconic 'Holidays Are Coming' advert, which soon became an unofficial marker that the festive season was on the way.

Fans would keep an eye out for the advert on TV or online and were convinced it didn't 'feel like Christmas' until they heard the joyful music and saw the cheeky Santa on the back of the truck.

Families were devastated last year when the famous tour had to be cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic and lockdowns in Britain.

Coca-Cola made the decision to not put on the tour to avoid crowds to follow the social distancing rules set in place at the time.
