The Coca-Cola Christmas truck is coming to Silverburn shopping centre this week

The holidays are well and truly coming, as Coca-Cola announces the first two stops of its spectacular Christmas Truck Tour. The much adored and famous Truck Tour is here to sprinkle some magic and cheer across Great Britain and is set to be bigger, brighter, and more dazzling than ever before. The festivities will take place at 17 consumer stops nationwide, starting in Glasgow on Friday 24th November, stopping at Silverburn Shopping Centre, and Edinburgh on Saturday 25th November at Fort Kinnaird Shopping Centre, promising a sleigh-load of excitement for everyone. This year's tour will be the ultimate Christmas celebration with a variety of activities available for guests to explore whilst visiting the iconic truck. The journey will be packed with interactive experiences for visitors to immerse themselves in festive fun. Guests will be welcomed by a walk-in, snow-filled bauble, inviting families to step into a winter wonderland for the perfect holiday snapshot. Guests can make a stop at the Ho-Ho-Hoop hut and participate in a game for the chance to win a selection of prizes including meal-inspired rewards and recycled Christmas tree decorations.

Families can finish off the tour by posing for a memorable photo opportunity in front of the iconic Coca-Cola truck. Throughout the tour, visitors will be able to listen to the Coca-Cola Christmas choir as they perform a set of carols, filling the air with holiday magic. To help deliver acts of kindness to those who need it most, Coca-Cola has partnered with Neighbourly, a giving platform that provides crucial support to local communities across the UK. This year, Coca-Cola and Neighbourly will be supporting the local communities across the cities the Coca-Cola Truck Tour will be visiting through a volunteering scheme and donation drive.
