Holidays are Coming ... to Morpeth

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 Morpeth Town Centre!

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 in Morpeth Town Centre on Thursday 16th November and Friday 17th November, from 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.

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.”

The team at Sanderson Arcade have teamed up with Morpeth Town Team to bring this fantastic festive event to the Town Centre.

Sanderson Arcade Centre Manager Joel Plumley said “We are delighted to be working with the Town Team on welcoming the Coca-Cola truck to Morpeth Town Centre on 16th and 17th of November for a truly magical event. There will be lots of family fun entertainment on the Centre throughout the day including food and drink stalls, Christmas carol singing and live music!

“We’d like to say huge thank you to Northumberland County Council for working in partnership with us on the road closure for the event.”
