IT'S an iconic symbol of Christmas - and it's coming to Southampton tomorrow.

The Coca-Cola truck will roll into town at 11am tomorrow as part of its UK tour and is set to make a stop at West Quay Shopping Centre on Saturday and Sunday.

Visitors will get the chance to wander through an enchanted wonderland, complete with seasonal music, before taking a photo with the truck and enjoying a free drink of Coca-Cola.

Once the sun has set, there will also be a special Christmas animation on display featuring 372 lightbulbs and 8,7772 fairylights.

Environmental protestors will be campaigning against the event and have announced their intention to build a Christmas tree made from littered plastic bottles.

Greenpeace say they will sing songs about the ocean and have branded the event a "ridiculous excessive and unnecessary contribution to the plastic problem facing our oceans, the environment and us humans."

The truck has made 397 stops since 2011 and has travelled more than 730,000 miles - the equivalent of 29 times around the world and also forms part of the brand’s iconic Christmas advert which will be screened for the first time this year on November 17.

A spokesman at Coca-Cola Great Britain said: "During the Christmas truck tour, we sample 150ml cans of Coca-Cola Classic, Coca-Cola Zero Sugar and Diet Coke.

"All our bottles and cans are 100% recyclable.

"We’ve also committed to increasing the amount of recycled and renewable material in our plastic bottles from 25% to 50% by 2020."
