CONTRACT LAW CASE STUDY 2 ASSIGNMENT 1 A band called ‘The Illusionists’ are performing their first UK tour. They have decided to use Rochford Concert Hall (RCH), a newly constructed venue for their first night. Tabby, the main singer was informed by the manager that the hall would hold 2500 people and that the acoustics were suitable for their performance and that they should have no problems. However the managers didn’t mention the fact that due to licensing matters, the concert had to come to an end by 11.00 p.m. The members of the band signed the contract of hire for the venue, and began to sell the tickets. They were pleased to hear that all 2500 tickets were sold very quickly. However, on the night of the concert, only 1800 were admitted onto the premises on the instructions of the local police due to health and safety reasons. The police also informed the band that even though the tickets displayed the finishing time of the concert as 1 a.m. the licence of the venue only entitled them to be open until 11.00 p.m. The setback resulted in 700 people demanding their money back due to not being allowed entry on the night and a large percentage asking for some reimbursement as the concert finished earlier than had been advertised on the tickets Tabby and the other members of the band are seeking advice from the firm. You have been instructed to write a letter to ‘The Illusionists’ on the following issues. a) Whether there was a duty to disclose information related to the licence of the premises? b) Did the manager’s comments amount to misrepresentation? c) Are there any remedies available to the band?
