I am writing an answer to a problem question and the facts are essentially that the defendant was selling tickets to an event. He hung up a sign in red letters, that reads that the event may be cancelled without warning and no refunds are accepted if this is the case, but that the purchaser's money will go to charity. The individual in the case has bought tickets to watch the event not to donate to that charity.

What topic is this related to? I assumed the first issue if whether the contract has been frustrated, but which topic covers the issue of the sign being hung up?

The warning would be considered as an exclusion clause. You might have to analyse whether such an exclusion clause is valid.

It could be about frustration, but it depends on why the event is cancelled. (is it because of an unpredicted event) If the individual bought the tickets in advance, there is a possibility that he/she might not be able to get a refund. (it depends whether such an exclusion clause is valid) Also, when the defendant hung up the sign in red, was it visible to everyone? If not, then it would imply that the individual might not have known of it and defendant could be sued. It really depends on the context.
