Coca-Cola truck Christmas tour 2020 cancelled for first time in 10 years

The Coca-Cola truck is a symbol for some of when Christmas has officially arrived. Made famous from the 'holidays are coming' advert, the red truck has been touring the country since 2010, stopping off at towns and cities across the UK, including Cheshire Oaks and Chester in the past. The iconic red truck usually visits more than 40 locations across the UK from the end of November.

Hundreds would travel to the closest truck locations to grab a free bottle of coca-cola and a picture. But this year the holidays won't be coming for the first time in 10 years, as the festive tour is the latest event to be cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
