Coca-Cola teases huge Christmas truck tour for 2021
Coca-Cola has confirmed that the Christmas truck tour will be returning to the UK this year after a series of cryptic messages left on their social media platforms. Last year’s annual event was cancelled due to coronavirus restrictions, but the touring event is due to make a comeback this year. Although official confirmation is yet to be made by Coca-Cola bosses, a series of cryptic messages have been posted online to build hype up for the festive event.

In 2018, festivities began even earlier on Friday, November 9, and on Saturday, November 11 in 2017.
