The Coca Cola truck 2017 tour dates are out and it's coming to Greater Manchester

Holidays are coming – and so is the Coca-Cola Christmas truck. The soft drinks giant has revealed the dates and locations for its 2017 tour, which will visit Greater Manchester this winter. The star of Coca Cola’s famous Christmas advert will park up at Bolton’s Middlebrook Retail Park on November 30 before trundling to the intu Trafford Centre on December 1 and 2.

They are among 42 stops across the UK, where visitors can enjoy a free 150ml can of Coca-Cola Classic or sugar-free alternatives Coca-Cola Zero Sugar or Diet Coke. Fans can also take a festive selfie to be projected across the side of the truck, which features 8,772 fairy lights and plays the Holidays are Coming jingle.

The Coca-Cola truck first appeared on screen in November 1995 and has since become a familiar fixture in festive TV schedules across more than 100 different countries. The classic advert shows a procession of twinkly trucks snaking their way through a snowy landscape, lighting up Christmas trees and houses as they pass while children watch in wonder.

The truck tour was launched in 2011 and has since travelled more than 730,000 miles – the equivalent of 29 times around the world.

There have been calls to ban it this year[1] as part of a campaign to tackle childhood obesity – but Coca-Cola is undeterred. Aedamar Howlett, marketing director for Coca-Cola Great Britain, said: “Coca-Cola is synonymous with the Christmas season and it’s no secret that our much-loved Christmas Truck Tour marks the unofficial countdown to Christmas. “We can’t wait to start spreading holiday cheer and we are excited to announce a brand new route for 2017 – which brings a sprinkling of festive magic to fans across the UK.”
