RIPPER TALK & WALK: Do Jack the Ripper & his victims still walk the streets?

London Haunts and Horrors will commemorate the 125th Anniversary of the Whitechapel Murders with a special talk from Jon Rees - a noted expert on Jack the Ripper.

In popular culture Jack the Ripper has always been a Victorian bogeyman - a phantom that stalks the street like a real life Edward Hyde or Dracula – emerging from the shadows onto fog filled streets and vanishing into the night like a spectre. 

It is therefore understandable that Jack the Ripper has always had a link to the paranormal – a link that continues to this day.

Ripperologist Jon Rees will explore some of the ghost stories that surround the Ripper – some of which date back to the time of the murders themselves, while others have formed over the last 125 years. Jon has been studying the Ripper case for nearly 10 years and has written several articles for Ripperologist magazine (the journal for Jack the Ripper, East End and Victorian studies), is currently co authoring a book on the murders and is a speaker at the Jack the Ripper 125th anniversary conference. He has a degree in Psychology and Criminology and is currently studying towards a Masters in Forensic Psychology and Criminology.

As well as his interest in the Whitechapel murders, Jon has had a fascination in ghosts and the paranormal since childhood. As part of his background in Psychology, Jon’s dissertation was a study into parapsychology and belief in the paranormal.

Following Jon's talk, you will be guided through the East End area where the Whitechapel murders took place to gain a better understanding of what happened there 125 years ago.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
