Holidays are coming as Coca-Cola truck visits city

19 November 2012

Shoppers in Peterborough city centre will be in for a real festive treat when the iconic Coca-Cola Christmas truck stops outside the Town Hall on Thursday 29 November, 2012 from 1pm until 9pm.

Bridge Street will be transformed into a snowy, winter wonderland complete with Christmas trees and festive helpers on hand to serve chilled Coca-Cola, Diet Coke and Coke Zero. The Coca-Cola Christmas choir will lead a selection of seasonal carols led by Jay Kamiraz, winner of The Prince’s Trust Young Achiever Award 2012. 

Coca-Cola trucks are travelling the whole of the UK and IrChristmas 2012 Coca-Cola Truckeland, giving thousands of fans the opportunity to take part in a unique Christmas experience and having their photo taken alongside the famous vehicles.

With a cult following across the world, the Coca-Cola Christmas trucks first appeared on screens in November 1995 and since then have been a regular feature of Christmas TV schedules in more than 100 countries.

Annette Joyce, Head of Commercial Operations at Peterborough City Council, said: "For millions of people the sight on our TV screens of the famous 'Holidays Are Coming' Coca-Cola Christmas truck marks the beginning of the festive season. The truck and entertainment that comes with it will spread seasonal cheer and add to the festive atmosphere the city centre generates at this time of year." 

Zoe Howorth, Marketing Director, Coca-Cola Great Britain, said: "The festive season can mean different things for different people but the ‘Holidays Are Coming’ advert is universally recognised as the unofficial countdown to Christmas. We’re looking forward to spreading the holiday spirit and kick-starting the celebrations across the country along the way.”

Ends.
