Visitors can snap and project their festive selfies across the side of the truck while enjoying a 150ml can of pop in a special winter wonderland setting.

When the sun sets, the truck really comes to life, with a special animation celebrating the magic Coca-Cola brings to Christmas.

Every truck stop will also include a recycling call-to-action, encouraging consumers to recycle bottles and cans in line with Coca-Cola’s recent Love Story recycling advert.

Boldon is one of 42 locations up and down the country which the truck is visiting in the run-up to Christmas. The full schedule is here.

It has travelled more than 730,000 miles in the last seven years – the equivalent of 29 times around the world, generating over 50,000 festive photos.

Aedamar Howlett, marketing director for Coca-Cola Great Britain, said: “Coca-Cola is synonymous with the Christmas season and it’s no secret that our much-loved Christmas Truck Tour marks the unofficial countdown to Christmas."
