Festive Scots are in for a treat this weekend as the Irn-Bru Carol Crew goes on tour serenading shoppers across the central belt. 

Looking to get shoppers into the Christmas spirit, Irn-Bru said their choir of heavenly voices will be belting out festive favourites with a ginger-themed ‘twist’.

A spokesperson for the brand said fans of Scotland’s other national drink can join in as the Carol Crew, who will be decked out in orange and joined by two Barr’s can mascots, sing their quirky setlist which will include ‘Joy to the Weeg’ and ‘Jingle BRU’.

Shoppers can catch the Irn-Bru Carol Crew at the following venues, where they can join in and get their hands on some of the unique song sheets:

The new/old version has been created using a recipe from a handwritten book stored deep in the company archives for over 100 years and is described by the firm as “like nothing anyone has tasted before”.
