The iconic Coca Cola Christmas truck – made famous by the seasonal ‘holidays are coming’ advert – is set to make a stop in Northampton this week.

The big red lorry, adorned with bright lights and a picture of a laughing Santa Claus drinking a bottle of the soft drink, will park up in St Giles Square on Wednesday (December 17) between midday and 8pm.

Northampton people will be able to have a photo taken with the truck and Coca Cola’s ‘Christmas helpers’ will be serving chilled cans of the drink and Diet Coke.

The visit is part of the lorry’s 45-stop tour around the UK, which began last month and will run until December 23.

The brand is encouraging people to upload their photos of the truck to social media site Twitter via the hashtag: #holidaysarecoming and by tweeting the company directly @CocaCola_GB.
