Victoria Retail Park will be hosting the Coca Cola Truck

Coca-Cola’s iconic red truck is returning to Nottingham this Christmas.

Victoria Retail Park will be hosting the 6.5m long, 13 tonne lorry once again on Thursday 6 and Friday 7 December.

It is the truck’s eighth annual tour in the UK but this year Nottingham is the only stop in the East Midlands.

A Coca-Cola spokesperson said: “Visit the truck in a glittering winter wonderland setting and enjoy a free 150ml can of Coca-Cola.

“Don’t forget to put your empty can in one of our recycling bins to help us with our global World Without Waste pledge – to collect and recycle a bottle or can for each one sold by the year 2030.”

In Mansfield last year, hundreds of people queued outside the red truck at Tesco for as long as 90 minutes to get their hands on a can of Coca-Cola.

Visiting times and further details will be announced nearer to the event.

The 2018 tour will kick off in Glasgow on the 9 November and visit 24 locations in the UK, before making its final stop in London on 16 December.
