About Ground Control

When proprietor Ben Mayhew was 3 years old in 1972 his father, Robin, was 'front of house' sound engineer for the David Bowie / Ziggy Stardust phenomenon.  Using the famous line from Bowie's song Space Oddity he formed a sound system rental company called Ground Control.  Throughout the rest of the '70's and the early '80s the successful venture engineered and supplied sound rigs to many big named artists of the day.  It is the perfect name for our marquee hire and event organising company as we cover, and thereby 'control', the very ground on which your function takes place.
