I remember a whole train hired for the school and the service in Westminster Abbey and packed lunch in the Royal Festival Hall.
In the assembly when Headmaster Mr Newsome gave out the details, some small boy asked "what happens if it rains" to which DHN replied "You will get wet".
In the 70s I think St.Mathews Day was Seniors only except choir from 3rd form up. As a Treble it was great to escape lessons for the day.

AFAIR in my time (1952-1961) the St Matthews Day parade was older boys only. For the 400th anniversary the entire school marched. In those days we had to march from London Bridge Station, breaking step as we crossed London Bridge and after the service returned to the Mansion House itself
