Holidays are Coming to Marshalls Yard

1 November 2017

It’s official: the countdown to Christmas has begun as Coca-Cola announces the return of the iconic Coca-Cola Christmas truck tour which is coming to Marshalls Yard!

Now in its seventh year, the tour will kick off in Glasgow on 11 November - visiting 42 locations nationwide during the festive season.

The nation-wide truck tour will be making a stop at Marshalls Yard on Thursday 23rd November, 11am-7pm with lots of family entertainment planned including carol singing, food and drink stalls, live music and much more.
 
Bringing a sprinkle of magic to people across the UK, the famous truck tour truly signifies the start of Christmas. Visitors are treated to more than ever at this year’s tour; at each stop fans can snap and project their festive selfies across the side of the truck while enjoying a 150ml can of Coca-Cola Zero Sugar, Diet Coke or Coca-Cola Classic in a winter wonderland setting. And for those visiting as the sun sets, the truck really comes to life with a special animation celebrating the magic Coca-Cola brings to Christmas. Every truck stop will also include a recycling call-to-action, encouraging consumers to recycle bottles and cans in line with Coca-Cola’s recent ‘Love Story’ recycling advert.
 
Over the last seven years, the ever-popular truck tour has seen thousands of Christmas fans visit the famous vehicle, generating over 50,000 festive photos. It has travelled over 730,000 miles – the equivalent of 29 times around the world – twinkling its 8,772 fairy lights and playing the iconic ‘Holidays are Coming’ jingle.
 
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.”

Marshalls Yard Centre Manager Alison Shipperbottom said “we are delighted to welcome the Coca-Cola truck to Marshalls Yard on 23rd November for a truly magical event. There will be lots of family fun entertainment on the Centre throughout the day including Christmas carol singing and craft stalls!”
