    Andrew Firth, Frogg Moody, Mark Ripper and Adam Wood are proud to announce that organisation of next year's East End Conference in London is well underway!

    We aim to give delegates an enjoyable weekend of talks and presentations by quality speakers on Jack the Ripper and other East End themed subjects. Plus a chance to catch up with old friends in the heart of the Whitechapel and Spitalfields district. And with 2018 marking the 130th anniversary of the canonical Jack the Ripper murders, we have a few special ideas to mark the occasion!

    Check back here, or on our Facebook group at https://www.facebook.com/groups/370960679931453/ for the latest developments as they unfold!

    Here's to the 2018 conference!

    Very best wishes,

    Andrew Firth (Conference Organiser)

      2018 EAST END CONFERENCE

      We're delighted to announce that the 2018 East End Conference, will be held over the weekend of 3rd and 4th November.

      Following 2017's successful event which saw talks from speakers including Robert Smith, Karl Coppack, Charlotte Mallinson and John Bennett, we're pleased to return this year to London's East End with a variety of lectures on Jack the Ripper and related East End topics.

      The event is being held at The Astronomer on Middlesex Street, at a cost of just £60 per person.

      Our emcee for the weekend will be Richard Jones, reprising his duties from the 2016 Ripperologist magazine 21st Birthday celebrations.
      Seven expert speakers will appear, those already booked are Louis Berk, Drew Gray and Philip Hutchinson, with more to be announced.

      The event website - www.eastendconference.com - will provide full details including how to reserve your place for this keenly-awaited event! The site will go live next week, watch this space for further details!

      Best wishes

      Andrew Firth, Mark Ripper & Adam Wood

        Thanks Andrew !

        Those attending and unfamiliar with (Prof.) Drew Gray are in for a treat. Excellent speaker and an authority on the East End ( among other things).

        We post a daily link to his Police Magistrate blog on The Forums here :

                I plan to attend the East End Conference in early November, and am greatly looking forward to it.

                The video is good. But what does it mean to anybody who is not a Ripperologist or a person who is "in the know," i.e., who doesn't know the people pictured in the video?

                I know who Drew Gray is, but do others who are not part of the Ripper community? I would say No. What you need is to make a video for the public not the cognoscenti.

                Best regards

                Chris

                            Rick,

                            I'm assuming that most of your JTR-focussed drinking mates have already bought tickets and the videos are a sort of 'thank you'?

                              Gary:

                              The video on this thread was made by Andrew Firth, not Rick Cobb.
