Archant

Pack up your tinsel and take back that tree, for Christmas this year may as well be cancelled.

The iconic Coca-Cola truck will not be gracing the city of Norwich with its presence this year.

The popular festive tour, which sees thousands flock to it each year, kicks off in Glasgow on November 11. The truck will visit 42 locations, finishing up at the Lakeside Shopping Centre in Essex on December 17.

However, this year Norwich sadly isn’t on Santa Claus’s ‘nice list’.

For many, the festive season doesn’t officially start until they spot the great big red lorry and take a peek at the jolly Father Christmas inside.

Norfolk’s nearest locations hosting the vehicle this year will be Ipswich, on December 1, and then Peterborough the following day.

It seems that all the city of Norwich will be getting for Christmas is a nasty great lump of coal.

The classic Coca-Cola ‘Holiday’s Are Coming’ television advert will also return to our screens later this month.
