    Given the recent travails of the Labour Party, I doubt that his subject was "Why Jews should be socialists"

    Thanks for posting up How.

    Just looking at these pictures still takes my breath away. It was a superb turn out, showing quite clearly that support in the field of Ripper studies has never been bigger.

    We thank each and every one of the delegates and speaker.

    We have no officially outgrown our usual London venue. We are gonna need a bigger boat when it comes to 2020.

    Ricky Cobb

    P.S Make sure to keep your eye on the official crime club website for out first London meeting of 2019 and a new club venue.

    Many thanks JJ . It was a real pleasure for us to have you present your work to the delegates of the 2018 JTR conference and to meet Christine and yourself for the first time. We were all very impressed with your work.

    Infact im so impressed with the line up this year im still buzzing with joy. Having all the big guns of ripperology under one roof leaves no doubt where the field is heading and were the interest lies, with not only the conference but with the H Division Crime Club as a whole.

    We’d love to see you back again soon and we will be planning something real special for 2019.

    Ricky Cobb

    P.s thanks to you and Christine for your gifts and very pleasant card to myself when you were leaving. I look forward to reading them.

    Great Conference!

    I just want to say on behalf of my partner and researcher, Christine, that we had an absolutely terrific time at the Conference organised by Ricky Cobb.

    A big thank-you to Ricky, Becky and Colin Cobb who looked after us all with efficiency and affability, and all the speakers were treated with politeness and fairness.

    It was such a thrill to meet accomplished writer-researchers of the calibre of Keith Skinner and Dr Martin Fido, who was in fine form as the closing speaker.

    Those few, who were interested, were shown the new material that has been found supporting the Druitt Solution (nothing found by me, I hasten to add) and were suitably impressed.

    Look forward to the next Conference!

    Wow, what a weekend. 140 delegates this time, which has shown we have now out grown our usual London Venue. May have to seek bigger boat for 2019.

    I was particularly impressed at the amount of writers and self publishers we had in attendance and have had some superb ideas for books for the future.

    As always with these events it shows interest in Ripperology continues to run and it was a real delight to meet awesome researchers and enthusiasts and some potentially future big names in the field of ripper studies. This shows we are all moving in the right direction and singing from the same song sheet. There will always be a small minority of moaners with anything we do but as pointed out by one Professor in attendance, they are become less and less relevant in the field. Lets hope so.

    Many thanks to all the speakers and delegates who made the weekend what it was.

    Roll on 2019

    Mr. Fido is there along with Mark Vogel, author of The Ripper's Time.





    Decent crowd.....pretty evenly divided between men and women.

    I hope all who are in attendance in London tonight are having a great experience and are happily sharing in each other's company. It's a super feeling when all the planning is put behind you and the moment arrives to just have a good time.

    The superb line up for the main Ripperology event of 2018. Just reading through the speakers list has once again reminded me how much the bar has been raised for these events since they first started in 2012. The delegates are in for a right treat to mark the 130th anniversary in style.

    Hard to imagine the conference is now over 20 years old and running better than ever. Still the only Jack the Ripper Conference in the UK. Many thanks to everyone in the field who has supported these events. Long may they continue.

    The official line up for this years Jack the Ripper Conference, marking 130 years since the start of the Whitechapel Murders. We feel this is a fantastic line up which brings a nice balance of cutting edge Ripperology and true crime together under one roof.

    This has been one of the fastest selling out conferences weve ever had and we are extremelly humbled by the support the field continues to has show us as we deliver the big events and value for money that researchers and enthusiasts have witnessed since the conferences began back in 2012.
