THE big red Coca-Cola truck will be making its annual visit to Bournemouth in the build-up to Christmas.

It will visit Pier Approach on Saturday, December 1 and Sunday, December 2 as part of its eighth annual tour of the UK.

Visitors will be able to have their picture taken alongside the truck, which is decorated with more than 8,772 twinkling fairy lights, and listen to the well-known ‘holidays are coming’ jingle featured in the popular Coca-Cola TV advert.

They will also receive a free 150ml can of the soft drink.

The 2018 tour starts in Glasgow on Friday and ends in London on December 16.

The truck will call at 24 locations across the UK.

Over the past seven years, the truck has travelled more than 737,000 miles.
