Ripper of a Christmas at Crescamus

Friends, family, and members of Crescamus Lodge gathered in Croydon for their annual White Table to celebrate Christmas on 9th December.

White Table

At the White Table, non-Masons dine with the members and being December, a four-course Christmas dinner was, of course, the choice of menu.

Jack the Ripper

After the conclusion of our Lodge meeting, we invited our guest into the Lodge room so that Mike Neville a renowned Masonic historian, could give his latest talk, “Jack the Ripper, Jack the Mason?”.

The interesting, entertaining and informative talk explored the likely suspects and those that had investigated the case originally, highlighting those with links to Freemasonry. It was quickly ruled out that Jack the Ripper was a Mason, but just who he was, still remains a mystery.

Everyone enjoyed the evening, and we were all then entertained during our meal by a harpist, and of course some Christmas carols.
