The Oasis Leisure Centre (commonly Swindon Oasis) is an entertainment and sports complex, situated outside Swindon town centre. It has many facilities available, such lagoon swimming pool, gym, bar and concert hall.

Over the last few years, the concert hall has become a major venue for touring acts and can hold approximately 3,000[1] people.

The Britpop band Oasis took their name after singer Liam Gallagher saw the name as a venue from a poster. In 2011, twenty years later, he performed there for the first time with new band Beady Eye.[2]
