The holidays are truly coming as Coca-Cola announces Leeds date for its iconic festive red truck.
Get ready Leeds, because the big red truck will be cruising its way through the city this week.
We’ve been waiting with bated breath to find out the exact date and location for the truck since they announced its triumphant return earlier this month.
And now, Coca-Cola has confirmed that they’ll be parking up at the White Rose Shopping Centre on Thursday 30 November 2023.
They are not giving us much time to prepare but between 12 and 8pm, you can pay a visit to the truck and hopefully get a free can of coke out of it.
Not only that, guests can also enter a giant bauble filled with snow and play hoopla in the hope to win some food and recycled Christmas tree decorations.
The festivities will be soundtracked by the Coca-Cola Christmas Choir so if you’re not feeling festive on arrival, we can guarantee you will by the time you’re leaving.
This year’s event will raise money a number good causes in Leeds via Coca-Cola’s partner the NeighbourlyFoundation, an organisation that helps businesses volunteer for and donate to good causes in their area.
Florence Wheatley, Coca-Cola Great Britain brand manager, said: “Coca-Cola has been spreading Christmas cheer for decades and, this year, we’ve added even more exciting elements to make it as magical and merry as possible. Alongside the beloved ‘Holidays Are Coming’ advert, we have introduced new elements like the ‘World Needs More Santas’ TVC and an interactive Santa Quiz.
“We’re also thrilled to extend our partnership with Neighbourly and emphasise spreading kindness and making a positive impact locally. Together, we want to inspire year-round acts of goodwill and truly make a difference in our communities.”
Neighbourly CEO Steve Butterworth said: “We’re excited to join forces with Coca-Cola over the festive period. The Christmas Truck Tour is a fantastic way to increase awareness of Neighbourly’s mission to help businesses build stronger communities.
“The partnership with Coca-Cola is about more than just festivities; it’s about making a real difference. By connecting businesses with local causes, we aim to create a positive impact that lasts beyond the holiday season.
