Capturing Jack the Ripper



Join us as we step back in time to the dark and dangerous streets of 1888 Whitechapel and one of the most infamous crimes of all time; the Jack the Ripper murders. Get to know those that were working day and night to stop the most notorious serial killer in British history and learn all about the methods they used. From uniformed bobbies to the detectives at the top of the food chain, sit back and enjoy as author and historian Neil Bell takes you behind-the-scenes of one of the world's most famous criminal investigations.

Neil R A Bell is one of the most respected students of the Ripper case. He has been published extensively in specialist journals such as Ripperologist and Casebook Examiner, as well as for the BBC. His books include ‘Capturing Jack the Ripper: In the Boots of a Bobby in Victorian London’ and ‘Howard Vincent's Police Code, 1889’.

Neil was the runner-up for the Jeremy Beadle Prize for the year's best articles featured in Ripperologist magazine in 2009 and 2010. He has also consulted on various Police TV and film productions such as the Channel Five documentary Jack the Ripper: The Definitive Story and provided information for the TV series Ripper Street.

Entry is one hour before the start of each talk to allow for the viewing of the museum itself and refreshments are included.
