The Coca-Cola Truck is returning to Manchester

The Coca-Cola truck is making its way across the country as part of its annual Christmas tour, stopping off in Manchester on the way. 

The truck will be coming to Manchester on Saturday 2 December, landing at the Trafford Centre from 12-8pm. In total, it will be making 17 stops on its UK tour, adding eight new locations for 2023.

Visitors will be able to take pictures with the iconic truck, as well as participate in a variety of different fun activities. This year, it promises to be “bigger, brighter, and more dazzling” than ever before.

What to expect 

New for this year is the massive, walk-in bauble that will be filled with snow and a great opportunity for some festive family photos. Of course, visitors will also have the opportunity for photos with the main attraction – the Coca-Cola truck. 

There will also be a Ho-Ho-Hoop hut, where you can play games for your chance to win prizes such as recycled Christmas tree decorations and ‘meal-inspired’ rewards. The Coca-Cola Christmas Choir will also be there to perform a selection of carols. 

Another exciting and interactive element of the Coca-Cola Christmas truck is the 'Discover Your Inner Santa' quiz, which is inspired by this year’s festive advert The World Needs More Santas. Participants will get to find their own Santa personality. There’s ‘The Thoughtful Santa', 'The Joyful Santa', 'The Generous Santa' and ‘The Empathetic Santa.’

If you are unable to come and see the truck in person, then the quiz will also be available to unlock on the Coca-Cola app or on the product's new Christmas packaging, where you can also find festive prizes, including trips to Lapland, unforgettable experiences, and exclusive Coca-Cola goodies.

Coca-Cola has partnered with Neighbourly, which will be helping to provide support to the local communities of the truck stop locations. You can donate online or via the QR code on the side of the truck. At the Manchester stop, they will be supporting the LGBTQ Foundation.
