Hi, I'm really stuck on a scenario for contract law and was hoping someone would be able to help me.

The scenario consists of a venue hosting a major event and needing to re-decorate. They pay £50,000 for a painting company to do the work. Before the painting company begins the work, the venue pulls out, because they are not longer hosting the event (not their fault, the event hosts no longer want to hold it there). The painting company wants to sue, and I have to advice the painting company.

I'm thinking I can argue the vitiating factor frustration, but has their been a breach of contract? That's the part I'm really stuck on as the contractual obligations were never performed.

Thanks for any help, its much appreciated

Also is the payment of £50,000 a condition/term of the contract? Or can consideration not be a term? I was going to argue, that venue was under a contractual obligation to pay the £50,000, and as they didn't its a breach of contract.
