    Jan Beyer

    Dear all, I am happy that I am today able to share the newest virtual LEGO House experience with you.

    Here is the press release.

    "LEGO House Live Tours – a new initiative

     

    Many LEGO® fans from all over the world are not able to visit LEGO House due to the restrictions of the COVID-19 outbreak.

    For all of you we are now opening up the History Collection in the basement of LEGO House to invite you to join the free LEGO House Live Tours where we introduce you to the history of the LEGO Group.

    The LEGO Group started back in 1932 and its history is full of stories and play. To provide an in-depth live tour we offer 5 individual tours based on 5 important chapters of the LEGO Group’s history. The tour will be hosted by a LEGO historian, who is an expert in LEGO history, and you will be able to ask questions during the session via Live Chat. The tour guide will answer your questions live.

    There are different timings of the sessions to cater for the different time zones you live in. Please be aware that we operate in Billund time (CET). We kindly ask you to convert the timing to your time zone.

     

     

    Duration of each tour is 60 minutes. It’s free to participate but registration prior to the event is required.

    I signed up for the tours, but haven't received any instructions on how to connect yet. What am I missing?

    Ideally, you should have received confirmation emails after signing up and another email in the last 24 hours with details of the teams meeting for signing up to the tour...

    I fear something has gone terribly wrong... I haven't seen any emails (that I remember)

    Did you not get anything "like" this (red box)?

    @Jetro de Château @Francesco Frangioja Sad to hear that you not received the email with the link - it seems it worked for many - did you check all your spam folders and everything? If yes please send me the email you used to sign up via PM and I will check with the project manager what went wrong and if this is perhaps a bigger issue or only a minor technical problem.

    Of course I am extremely sorry that you not were able to join so please accept my deepest apologies.

    We attended the first guided online tour yesterday. It was wonderfully informative and we had virtually no problems with the connection whatsoever. Looking forward to the next one.

    Thank you @Jan Beyer. No need to apology: technical issue can happen. I do not have any message in my spam folders. It is possible that I made a mistake while I was signing for the tour. I also signed up for the next ones. I'm sure it'll get better.

    I've already received invitations for all of the tours, so, if you haven't, it's worth having them check.

    The original invites for all tours went out on the same day (3rd June for me), so if you did not get those as well, then you might not be in the system at all. 
    Then there was an additional separate reminder email on the day before the 1st tour ( with link just for the upcoming one)

    Today is the last day to sign up for the next tour:

    Consolidating plastic, 1947 – 1961 Through a guided tour in the LEGO House History Collection you can learn about a crucial period in the history of the LEGO Group. The game changer happened in 1958 when the LEGO brick was introduced, but many other activities in the late 1940s and up through the 1950s contributed to creating the foundation of the company we know today and we are here to tell you all about it.

    See you there.

    @Jordan Paxton, When you say today is the last day to sign up.  Is the deadline, always 24 hours before and is time sensitive, depending on where you live?  And do you get an email confirmation of some kind for each one?  These are questions from my Peanut Gallery

    Yes, sign up ends the day prior. Yes, you receive two emails for each tour, one to confirm and one to remind.
