Voted the Number One Event for Anyone Interested in Criminology
whether you are a student, author or amateur sleuth; looking for an exciting weekend of Jack the Ripper studies and true crime investigations.
Every year, we host the annual Jack the Ripper True Crime Conference, a public event which gathers experts in criminology from around the world to come and present their research to our delegates. The weekend covers a whole host of topics including the Jack the Ripper murders, conspiracies and police investigations; a true crime event not to be missed!
To date, this is the largest True Crime Conference in the UK and has been running since 2012. The conference is not only a wonderful event for crime enthusiasts, it is also a fantastic platform for authors - old and new - to come and promote their work with others, plus a fantastic opportunity to engage with their audience over a couple of days.
The weekend events normally take place in a handpicked hotel venue and there is always an opportunity to purchase True Crime memorabilia plus other merchandise, including books, t-shirts, DVD’s and posters.
Past speakers and authors at the True Crime Conference weekend have included;
- Prof David Wilson - Regarded as the leading Criminologist in the UK,
- Laura Richards, Criminal Profiler from Scotland Yard,
- Prof David Canter, Criminal Psychologist
- Author & Historian, Martin Fido
The conference weekend is organised by dedicated Ripperologists (those that study the crimes of Jack the Ripper), historians and criminologists - including the team here at the Jack the Ripper Tour and features expert speakers delivering a wide range of discussions and presentations.
