Coca-Cola will be bringing its iconic festive truck to Eastbourne this afternoon (Friday December 18).

Bobby Brittain, marketing director at Coca-Cola Great Britain said, “We’re delighted to be visiting Eastbourne this year as part of the Coca-Cola Christmas truck tour.”

The truck will arrive in Eastbourne at midday, where it will park beside Debenhams in Terminus Road until 8pm.

During the visit, the people of Eastbourne will have the opportunity to get up close and personal with the famous vehicle and take pictures with the truck as it lights up in a winter wonderland setting, whilst listening to a live choir singing favourite festive hits.

Visitors will also be able to enjoy a 150ml can of either Coca-Cola, Coca-Cola Life, Coca-Cola Zero or Diet Coke.

Alongside Eastbourne, the truck is visiting 46 destinations up and down the country in the run up to Christmas. Eastbourne is the only stop in Sussex.

This year the iconic ‘Holidays Are Coming’ TV advert returns to screens for the 20th year and will be played in the run up to Christmas.
