Crowds flock to Gainsborough for weekend of Festive Fun!

26 November 2018

The Coca Cola trucked visited Marshall’s Yard at the weekend for a fabulous two days of festive fun and entertainment. 

Thousands of visitors turned out to see the famous red truck and enjoy the additional  festive line up organised by the shopping centre team - including music, rides, food-to-go and craft stalls. 

The two day event was supported by DrumBeat Marketing UK, WEFCO and Martin & Co and additional support has also been given by Gainsborough Town Council and Invest Gainsborough. 

The Coca Cola Truck Tour team chose Gainsborough as one of the UK locations to have a two day visit, allowing visitors extra time to plan their trip.  It’s the second year the truck has visited Marshall’s Yard. 

And despite rainy weather on the Sunday the crowds turned out to enjoy the festive fun and grab a selfie and a free Coca Cola sample from the truck team. 

Overflow car parking at the football ground and locals schools was organised to cater for extra visitors. 

Centre Manager Alison Shipperbottom said: “We are delighted that the Coca Cola Truck Tour chose Marshall’s Yard as one of their locations again this year. We’ve had some fantastic feedback from shoppers and would like to say a big thank-you to all the companies and local organisations who supported the festive weekend.”
