You know Christmas is just around the corner when the Coca-Cola truck passes through Bristol on its UK tour and this Friday and Saturday November 22 and 23 it will be coming to Cribbs Causeway.
It’s not something that has ever appealed to Little Miss Diva and I – and I can’t see that changing now she’s nearing the teenage years – but as it’s something popular with families up and down the country, I thought it would be nice to share with those of you who’ve got younger kids.
It’s a free event where visitors will be given the opportunity to grab a free can of coke, buy a personalised bottle with their name on it and take part in plenty of selfie opportunities at The Photo Podium, The Photo Frame and The Selfie Bridge. The truck is open from 12 noon til 7pm and it will get busy with long queues so be prepared.
This year, to raise funds and awareness for the great work done by homelessness charity Crisis, Coca Cola will donate 10p in exchange for every can placed in their recycling bins throughout the truck tour. So make sure you recycle your can after you’ve finished your drink. If you live outside Bristol, here are the times and dates that the truck will stop in other UK cities:
