Young BGT magician includes Ilkley in tour

BGT's Cillian O’Connor comes to Ilkley in July

Young magician and Britain’s Got Talent 2023 Finalist, Cillian O’Connor, is bringing his ‘My World Of Magic’ tour to the King’s Hall in Ilkley on 22nd July.


Cillian was just 13 years old when his audition in front of Simon Cowell and the other Britain’s Got Talent judges catapulted him onto our TV screens and into the hearts of the entire Nation. He went on to reach the top three in the Final of the show and his performances online are the most watched across the entire 2023 series, reaching over 500 million views in just a few weeks.



With appearances in Monte Carlo and the USA lined up, this is the first time to catch Cillian live on stage with guest support from Ryland Petty from America’s Got Talent.


Cillian became the youngest member of the Society of Irish Magicians when he was just ten years old and is also a member of The Young Magicians’ Club and The Society of Young Magicians. During Lockdown he honed his skills by performing magic for people from his front garden. As well as performing on Britain’s Got Talent he has performed at the Fleadh and at the Blackpool Magic Convention Gala Show in 2022.


In May 2023, he was presented a special award of merit by The Society of Irish Magicians for representing the art and The Society in an exemplary fashion.

Cillian has said that Magic has helped him to build his social skills which were affected by his autism and dyspraxia. He promises to enchant and amaze audiences across the UK and Ireland with a show for the entire family. 


Cillian is at the King’s Hall in Ilkley on Monday 22nd July, tickets are available from
