Coca-Cola adds two extra locations to Christmas Truck Tour for fans this week

Coca-Cola has finally confirmed two more locations and dates for the Coca-Cola Christmas Truck Tour 2021.

The fizzy drinks giant is announcing this year's tour locations one by one, and last week they revealed that the iconic red lorries would be stopping off in Newcastle on November 26.

The tour kicked off in Glasgow on November 24, passing through Newcastle and Leeds before reaching the two new locations.

In the most recent update, Coca-Cola confirmed that the 'Holidays Are Coming' lorry will stop off in Castleford on December 1 and Sheffield on December 2, meaning that people in Yorkshire are spoilt for choice this year.

Those in Castleford need to head to Xscape between 11am and 8pm.

The tour will then stop for the same time the following day at Sheffield's Fox Valley Shopping Park.

Coca-Cola GB added on Twitter: "Closing time will be based on demand, queue closing time will vary per location (get there early to avoid any disappointment)."

Following the disappointment last year when the tour was cancelled due to Covid, fans are more eager than ever to get back into the annual tradition.

Reacting to the latest announcement on Twitter, many urged Coca-Cola to come to their towns.

"Please announce for Essex so I can take the day off work lol," pleaded one.

"Yes do tell us!" urged another when discussing a possible stop-off in London.

The company were quick to respond to the speculation, telling fans that more confirmations would come and instructing people to "keep an eye on our social channels for truck tour updates".

The tour dates are being announced differently this year in preparation for any new Covid restrictions that could be imposed in the lead-up to Christmas.

Louise Maugest, marketing director for Coca-Cola GB, has emphasised the need for this year's tour to be conducted "safely".

She said: "Coca-Cola has always been synonymous with Christmas, particularly the iconic truck tour.

"With the magic of Christmas needed now more than ever, we thought it was only right that we bring it back this year, safely and securely.

"The Coca-Cola Truck Tour has always been a moment to remind us of the importance of togetherness and community, something particularly prevalent during the festive season."
