The musician, who has played with the Stone Roses, Ian Brown, Paul Weller and Simply Red to name a few, is the special guest at UCLan’s diversity fringe event. The fringe event, organised by the UCLan Creative Communities Group (CCG), brings together musicians, artists and representatives from health organisations, business and the local community with a common theme of promoting and supporting positive health and wellbeing. Aziz commented: “I was delighted when Russell Hogarth asked if I could support the UCLan Creative Communities Group at the diversity fringe event. It's going to be a pleasure performing on the night to an audience of UCLan students, staff and community members. The evening will also be the launch of an exciting future project that Russell and I are both working on at UCLan for 2016.

"Creative Communities like this are vital to support our bourgeoning creative industries. Modern technology is increasingly allowing creative businesses to be based anywhere so having communities based around and supported by regional universities can help to provide mutual support and help to share knowledge and opportunities"
