Canterbury Westgate TowersMuseum to reopen
CANTERBURY'S Westgate Towers Museum reopens this Friday (May 4). Its future was in doubt following the shock death of developer Charles Lambie in January.
Councillor Cllr Ann Taylor, the city council's executive member for culture, said: "There was a collective shock in the city at the news came of Charles Lambie's death. But we hoped it would be possible to carry on his wonderful work with the Westgate Towers Museum because it is one of our most historic buildings."
She added: "I'd like to thank the executors of Charles' estate for their help with getting the museum open. It means residents and visitors have another great attraction available to them again."
Legal contracts were signed this morning (Wednesday).

The museum will be open every day from 10am to 5pm until September. Tickets with a six-month expiry bought under Mr Lambie's guardianship will be honoured.
Admission is £8 (children and Residents Card-holders free). The City Gaol Café which Mr Lambie created as part of his redevelopment is not included in the reopening.
A long-term decision on the future of the museum will be made by councillors in the autumn, depending on how successful the summer season is.
The council has created a joint ticket offering entry to the Westgate Towers Museum, Canterbury Heritage Museum and Canterbury Roman Museum for £12.
